11/22 – Rob Knight’s “THANKSGIVING DAY” Morning Forecast

This morning we have widespread showers south of the area, much of the precipitation is not reaching the ground due to dry air below the cloud layer. The precip that is reaching the ground is generally light. There will be a 20-30% chance for precip through late morning for areas generally south of the I-10 corridor, any rain should be limited to the coastal waters with decreasing cloud cover by this afternoon.

Rain chances will be on the rise again Friday as an disturbance moves toward and through the Lower Mississippi Valley. Precip chances will peak around 80% during Friday afternoon through Friday night. This system will bring rain with a slight chance of thunder as the cold front passes by, but not expecting anything severe at this time.

Expect a warming trend over the weekend with yet another system affecting the area Sunday with mainly showers…about a 30-40% chance for precip. Cold air will move in behind the front Sunday night, with a 10 degree drop in low temperatures compared to the previous night. Cold air advection continues through the day Monday, with highs struggling to reach even the upper 50s. Monday and Tuesday nights look to be the coldest, with lows dropping into the 30s across the northern half of the area both nights. A few models indicate potential freezing temperatures for northern areas both nights, so will need to monitor that potential through the next several days.
