10/15 – Rob Knight’s “Approaching Cold Front” Morning Forecast
[videoembed][/videoembed]Warm & humid will continue today as an area of low-pressure along a cold front near Wichita Falls will race northeastward toward Lake Ontario by midnight tonight. The associated cold front is expected to reach northwest Louisiana by mid to late afternoon, to near Lake Pontchartrain around midnight, and out of the area by sunrise Saturday.
likely scenario for our area is a relatively narrow band of showers with a few rumbles of thunder as the front arrives. It’s entirely possible that with the front arriving overnight, areas east of Interstate 55 may see little, if any rainfall with the front. The weekend will FINALLY FEEL LIKE AUTUMN, with cooler temperatures and a drier air mass. Gusty winds will follow the frontal passage with 20 to 25 degree drops in dew points over about 12 hours. There is some potential that there may need to be a Wind Advisory during the day Saturday.
Sunday and Monday morning temperatures will remain rather chilly, with high temperatures beginning to slowly warm.
