11/27 – Rob Knight’s FRIGID Morning Forecast
Most of the northern Gulf Coast remains under control of an area of high-pressure located over Ok/Ark, keeping a northwesterly wind and cold air moving into the region. Another cold night is ahead but the warm-up will begin Wednesday as the high-pressure moves to our east and the return flow begins.
By Thursday through late week, the surface high-pressure continues east, allowing for a steady on-shore return flow to develop. Increased low-level warm air advection in association with a steady influx of Gulf moisture will help develop spotty showers across the lower MS Valley region…with the possibility for a t-storm or two Friday.
Going into the weekend, the next major storm system will move into the region. Increased activity may develop as early as Friday night/Saturday morning.
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has the area under a SLIGHT RISK for SEVERITY as this system gets closer to the area on Saturday.
However, it does seem like the greatest threat will be north of our viewing area. A second system, slight similar to the early weekend system will move across the SE with another shot of widespread rain/storms primarily late Monday into Tuesday. Once again, strong storms cannot be ruled out.
