11/15 – Brantly’s “Warmer” Monday Night Forecast
Surface high pressure will continue to slide to the east, turning our wind flow to the south/southeast for the next couple days. This will gradually increase moisture during this time. With this added moisture and the possibility of efficient cooling tonight, patchy fog is likely, primarily along the coast.
High temperatures for Tuesday continue to be on the warm side, sticking to the mid to upper 70s in most areas. Tuesday night, northern areas will see the best chances for fog development with much clearer skies compared to southern areas where marine stratus clouds may move inland during the overnight.
The warming trend continues on Wednesday with some areas likely breaking into the low 80s and most other areas in the upper 70s. Rain chances are expected to remain non-existent during the day on Wednesday, but we will start to see a gradual increase into Wednesday night over the outer-coastal marine areas as a weak cold front approaches the area.
Out next weather system will move through the Great Lakes region on Thursday, bringing a weak cold front through our area. This will bring us chances for showers Thursday, but lift along the front is still going to be fairly limited this far south, similar to recent frontal passages so far this fall. Rain chances will be around 30-40 percent. High temperatures Thursday drop slightly, but stay fairly warm in the mid to upper 70s for most areas. We again see cooling behind the front as winds shift to the northeast at the surface, with overnight lows on Thursday dropping into the low to mid 40s.
Another cold front is expected to approach the area on Sunday. This will again bring a slight increase in rain chances, around 20-30 percent, through the afternoon on Sunday. There is a good amount of disagreements on the timing and intensity of this front in the models, so forecast changes are to come in the next several days. Highs then trend cooler as well late week and into the weekend, with most areas in the low to mid 60s Friday and returning to the low to mid 70s by Sunday.
