11/21 – Rob’s Wednesday “Midday News” Forecast
High pressure currently centered over southern Arkansas will provide for cooler temps and sunny skies. The next disturbance will move across the area late tonight and Thanksgiving morning. Very little in the way of weather will affect the area…mostly showers over the N’tern Gulf. Tomorrow’s system will already be off the Atlantic coast Friday morning as the next system in the parade moves into the Southern Plains states, and into the Mississippi River Valley by Friday evening. This low will track across southern portions of our area Friday night. That being said, there could be a few rumbles of thunder through the area Friday afternoon and evening. Rain should exit the area by sunrise Saturday.Saturday will be another transition day. The system Friday won’t have any cold air with it so Saturday will be warmer than normal.
Yet another system will affect the area on Sunday, with very little in the way of deep moisture available. There might be a very brief window around midday or early afternoon Sunday that could potentially support a few rumbles of thunder across the southern third of the area. Rain will move quickly out of the area by early evening. Temperatures will be above normal Saturday night and Sunday, but this system will have cold air behind it. Monday and Tuesday temperatures will have a tough time getting out of the 50s for high temps.
