10/15 -Rob Knight’s “Warm, Humid” Afternoon Forecast
The next focus will be to our west as a deepening upper-level disturbance swings quickly east across the central Plains and eventually mid/upper MS valley regions. This will help deliver the well-advertised more potent cold front through the area late Thursday evening and into early Friday morning. Given the front’s strength, it could squeeze out some light showers or drizzle early Friday morning. Ongoing breezy northerly winds during the day Friday with cold air advection across the area will bring CHILLY conditions Saturday morning. Lingering low/mid-level cloud cover will quickly dissipate during the day, which will reveal mostly sunny skies during the day as temperatures struggle to reach the lower to mid-70’s.
Friday night, as relatively strong area of high pressure settles in across the Appalachians, which will try to diminish winds some overnight. The weekend will bring sunny skies, low humidity and mild temperatures.
