10/11 – Rob Knight’s Wednesday Morning Forecast
A cold front has made its way into the area. Dew point temperatures Have fallen into the mid 60s to the northwest in our area, but fall even further to the mid 40s across northeast Texas. This air will not reach us but it does show how strong the front is. Fog should be supported ahead of the front as well. The front will gradually settle along the coast later today slowly filtering in drier air than what has been the case the last few days. Ambient temperatures will only fall back only a few degrees for some, but the dry air will make the heat much more tolerable. Several showers/t-storms should be capable of developing mainly during afternoon heating today along the leading edge of the front across coastal sections of Mississippi and Louisiana. Any precip activity will quickly dissipate after sunset.
Thursday and Friday, most if not all the area should observe this dry air to some extent. The front then begins a rapid trek northward over the weekend as deep moisture once again makes its return to the area Sunday through Monday. The moisture will only make it central Miss and central La as another cold front moves southward into Louisiana by Sunday evening. The front will press the deep moisture and the coastal trough into the gulf Monday evening finally bringing our first strong surge of dry cool air to the region Monday night into Tuesday morning. This will be very noticeable. There is some indication that an inverted trough will make its way into the eastern portion of the area next Wednesday evening with some moisture return.
