10/28 – Brantly’s “Rainy Mid-Week” Monday Morning Forecast
We have about a day and a half of quiet weather before rain chances increase and the first real cold front sweeps through the area. High pressure is still in place across the viewing area although it is slowly fading northward. Patchy fog is possible across the area this morning and again later tonight. Some areas could see dense cloud cover this morning and it should hang in the area through the morning hours and then move northward through the afternoon. High temperatures should be in the mid to upper 70s along the coast and lower 70s inland away from the water.
Going into Tuesday, high pressure near the Bahamas will steer a weak tropical wave in the southern Gulf of Mexico north towards the Gulf Coast. This tropical wave doesn’t really have a chance of developing into anything significant, but it will provide moisture flow into the area over the next few days. Rain will move in on Tuesday and continue on and off through Thursday. The rain chance goes up to around 70 percent for the middle of the week.
Eventually a cold front will sweep through on Thursday and clear the rain out before Halloween night. Then much colder air will settle in. Friday and Saturday, high temperatures will be in the lower to mid 60s with lows in the lower to mid 40s.
