11/18 – Rob’s “Cold Frontal Passage” Afternoon Forecast
Rain chances will gradually decrease through this afternoon as a cold front moves east. An increase in northeasterly flow will become breezy this evening through Friday evening. Much cooler/drier air moves in following the front with low temperatures trending in the low to mid 40s for most Thursday and Friday night. High pressure then builds in heading into the weekend.
High pressure building in for the weekend will help to diminish the winds by Saturday and turn them towards the east. Saturday and into most of the day on Sunday we are looking to have pleasant weather, with temperatures in the low to mid 70s and clear skies until the arrival of our next front. An upper level disturbance will dig down into the Central U.S late Saturday and into Sunday, forming our next cold front. This front will slide down into our region early Monday. We will have a limited amount of moisture available in the environment, keeping rain chances in the 20-30% range for now. Expect below normal temperatures through the early half of next week, with high temps trending in the low to upper 60s. Low temps also trend cooler, with northern areas dropping to the mid to upper 30s.
