11/10 – Rob’s “Approaching Cold Front” Wednesday Morning Forecast
Surface high pressure that has been dominating the area will begin to shift off to the east today as an upper level disturbance extends down into our area ushering in returned moisture. Though this disturbance is expected to quickly sweep through our area Thursday, it will be accompanied by a few showers and thunderstorms. Moisture and instability is limited and unfavorable for any extremely heavy rainfall but it cannot be ruled out. Also cannot rule out a lightning strike or two as instability continues to be rather limited. Some surface fog can be expected this morning and possibly again tomorrow morning as well but will quickly mix out by daybreak.
Temperatures today through at least Friday will be slightly warmer than previous days with highs in the mid to upper 70s. However this will be short lived as a cold front moves through the area at some point Friday. This will keep dry, cool air in the area thus lowering daytime temperatures to the low to mid 60s and night lows dropping to low 40s to upper 30s going into the weekend. A ridge of high pressure will quickly follow behind the front allowing for drier weather conditions going into the weekend as well.
