11/15 – Rob Knight’s “Sunny & Warmer” Afternoon Forecast
Today and Tuesday will bring sunny skies and light winds as highs/lows each day becoming a few degrees warmer than previous days. Thursday, an upper level disturbance is expected to move through the northeast coast of the US, which will help enhance some rain chances for our area. Easterly to southeasterly surface winds will help to enhance moisture and warm air advection into the area, which will also enhance lifting in the environment for showers and a few t-storms. As a result, coastal areas will see the best chances of more widespread, but efficient rainfall on Thursday.
Friday through Sunday, weak upper level high-pressure will dominate the upper level pattern. Surface winds will be northerly on Friday, which will enhance cold air advection and subsidence in the environment. Friday will have drier and cooler conditions. Surface winds will be easterly on Saturday and Sunday, which will help to reintroduce some moisture and warm air back into the region. As a result, an isolated shower or two will be possible over the weekend, especially Sunday afternoon.
