10/20 – Brantly’s “Wet Weather Returns” Wednesday Forecast

Today, wet weather returns to the forecast. We are expecting quite a bit of shower activity along with a few thunderstorms. Although there may not be more than 30-50% coverage at any one time, fully expect 60-80% coverage by the end of the day over the forecast area. High pressure centered northeast of the area will remain in place for the forecast period as it settles in over the western Atlantic. The clockwise flow around this area of high pressure will keep onshore winds pushing more warm air and moisture into the region, making it feel more humid.

For temperatures, the onshore wind flow and increased cloud cover will keep highs in the upper 70 to low 80 range through the next few days. Overnight lows will also trend warmer for these reasons, with lows Wednesday night increasing to low to mid 60s inland increasing to upper 60s down to the coast.

A cold front will drift southward through Friday and stall out along the I-10 corridor by Friday afternoon. This will keep small rain chances across mainly southern portions of the area during the day on Friday into Friday night. Northern areas will remain mostly rain-free as a drier airmass moves in behind the front. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s inland to around 70 near the coast Thursday night and in the upper 50s and low 60s inland to mid 60s along the coast on Friday night. Highs on Friday will range from the upper 70s to low 80s.
