10/11 – Rob’s “Cold Frontal Passage” Midday Forecast

A cold front overhead continues to move slowly to the east, with only minimal activity on-tap this afternoon.

Cooler air to the NW will not make it into the area but drier air will move into the Gulf Coast. 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.
