11/19 – Brantly’s “Cool and Clear” Friday Evening Forecast
A cool and quiet start to the weekend is in store for the region as we remain in a post- frontal airmass under zonal flow aloft. However, an increase in cloud cover is expected from easterly maritime wind flow, which should allow dewpoints to rise into the 50s by tomorrow afternoon. A couple of isolated showers cannot be ruled out offshore as well, but the overall weather is forecast to stay dry. High temperatures rebound to the upper 60s and low 70s, while overnight lows dip to the upper 30s and low 40s away from the coast. Moderate to locally strong northeast winds this evening will slowly decrease overnight and into Saturday morning. A Small Craft Advisory will continue tonight across the coastal waters while exercise caution conditions will exist around the Bays and the Mississippi Sound.
Highs for Sunday will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Another cold front is expected Monday with winds and seas increasing behind the frontal passage. As the cold front approaches the area Sunday night into Monday morning, there will be a slight chance for rain or a few showers to occur.
There could be a few rain showers left over in the coastal waters Monday evening. Cooler temperatures are in store for highs Monday behind the front but cold temperatures are on tap Monday night. Skies will clear for Monday night and allow temperatures to fall to the lower to mid 30s in coastal area south of I-10 and upper 20s inland.
