10/14 – Rob’s “Friday-Eve” Morning Forecast
Today will bring advance moisture flow to the area in advance of a front now moving east across the southern plains. As instability slowly decreases, a few showers will be possible through tonight. A few showers will also affect the area Friday with the approaching cold front. The main effects from the front will come overnight Friday into Saturday morning prior to sunrise. As the upper-level support begins to outrun the surface feature along with overnight cooling and stabilization, I’m only expecting a few showers and t-storms with the main boundary.
Temperatures fall quickly behind the front, and the winds pick up from the northwest overnight. We dry out and stay cool/mild all day Saturday as colder air moves in quickly. A comfortable northerly breeze will dominate all day Saturday with mostly sunny skies (some patchy upper-level cirrus), a real taste of fall. Enjoy!
Sunday will come in looking beautiful once again, but with a layer of upper-level cirrus in place. Otherwise, with the high finally settled in, afternoon winds will be lighter with all around comfortable temperatures expected. Same challenges will exist going into Sunday night/Monday morning with even thicker upper-level clouds pulling in.
