11/19 Rob Knight’s “Sunny & Warmer” Weekend Forecast
Breezy conditions behind last night’s cold front will gradually diminish later in the evening. Low temperatures tonight into Saturday morning will be the coolest of the short term, dropping into the low to mid-40s. Surface high pressure will gradually build into the area for the weekend will bring very pleasant weather for Saturday as high temperatures trend in the low to mid-70s under plenty of sunshine!
High pressure will continue into early Sunday, but will quickly exit as our next system arrives later in the day. An upper level disturbance will dig down into the central U.S on Sunday, forming an associated cold front that will sweep through our area into the evening Sunday. With a limited amount of moisture available, rain is expected to be fairly light. The front looks to be completely through by Monday mid-day, with gusty northerly winds to follow the front.
Much cooler air also follows this front, with low temperatures Tuesday morning possibly approaching freezing for some far northern areas.
High pressure briefly builds in for Tuesday and Wednesday, diminishing the winds and bringing quiet conditions. Surface flow turns back to southeasterly ahead of yet another approaching cold front. This southeasterly flow will bring some moisture back into the region following the cool and dry air from Monday’s front.
