11/22 – Rob Knight’s “Mild & Humid” Friday Morning Forecast
A plume of upper-level moisture moving in from the SW will continue to bring upper-level cloud cover to the area through the morning hours. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm this morning with readings in the 60s and lower 70s expected.
By this afternoon, the forecast area will be beneath a broad region of upper level lift. Expect showers and thunderstorm activity this afternoon and evening to our NW. During the overnight hours, temperatures should cool into the upper 50s and lower 60s, and this will lead to lower instability values. As a result, expect to see the risk of thunderstorms diminish later tonight across inland areas, but shower activity will persist as the cold front begins to push into the region.
The cold front will quickly race across the entire forecast area tomorrow, and expect to see clearing skies and drier weather develop from west to east throughout the day. By tomorrow evening, only a few showers over the offshore waters are forecast as the front continues to race off to the east. Temperatures will climb back into the upper 60s and lower 70s before the front rolls through, but cold air advection through the afternoon hours should result in dropping temperatures after midday. With clear skies and lower humidity values in place tomorrow night, lows will easily fall into the 40s.
High-pressure will dominate Sunday into Monday with upper level clouds beginning to develop Monday. As moisture continues to increase across the area Monday night, higher dew-points will result in warmer overnight lows. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will develop across the region Tuesday afternoon and evening. Thanksgiving day should bring warm temperatures and partly cloudy skies.
