10/13 – Brittany’s “Brief Cool-down” Thursday Evening Forecast

Skies have cleared following the passage of a cold front this morning. Drier air has moved in with clear and cool conditions overnight and temperatures cooling to the 50s. A northerly wind component will continue through tonight but will shift to the east by midday Friday. High pressure to the northwest of our area will steadily move to the southeast. By Saturday, the area of high pressure will be centered over the Florida Panhandle. This will increase the moisture in our area. Clear skies will continue through Saturday, with Sunday being a day of transition.

Clouds and humidity will return Sunday, and another cold front will move in early next week. An upper-level disturbance coming from the Pacific Northwest will drag a trailing cold front early next week. At this time, the slope of the front looks fairly shallow and should only support rainfall. However, a few thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. The timing of this boundary moving through is rather uncertain at this time, with frontal passage anytime late Monday through sunrise Tuesday. A much colder airmass will take hold for the region, bringing well-below seasonal temperatures and breezy conditions. Overnight lows will drop to the mid and upper 40s post frontal passage, with daytime highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.
