10/21 – Jeff Vorick’s “Warming Trend” Friday Morning Forecast
As the colder airmass continues to slide east, an upper level high pressure will move in behind it. Temperatures will continue to moderate today as high temperatures will climb into the upper 70s to low 80s. It will feel more humid with mostly clear skies and a South wind.
The rest of the forecast going into the weekend looks to be quiet with seasonal temperatures expected. The high pressure that moves in today will transition into a more zonal flow, which will keep temperatures similar from day to day. Low level moisture will return to the area as onshore flow develops. It is still pretty dry throughout the atmosphere as moisture flow will remain well below seasonal norms for this time of the year.
Moving into next week a disturbance will drop out of the Rockies Monday evening and swing through the lower Mississippi Valley. As it does so, it picks up and absorbs a weak low pressure system passing across Mexico. The area of low pressure will track well to the north of the Tennessee Valley area towards the northeast, keeping the bulk of the energy well to the north of our area. Isolated showers and thunderstorms can be expected Tuesday afternoon into very early Wednesday. Once the front clears the area, only a minor cool-down is expected towards the latter part of next week.
