11/8 – Rob Knight’s “Cold Start” Monday Morning Forecast
High pressure in the upper/mid-levels will remain the driving force of the short term forecast period. Much of the workweek remains a temperature forecast as surface high pressure keeps any rain potential out of the area through midweek. Mild daytime temperatures in the mid to upper 70s with mostly clear skies can be expected once again and will likely be the case through at least midweek.
In advance of a cold front Thursday, some moderate instability is expected to develop as temperatures climb into the upper 70s. This be supportive of some weak thunderstorm development in the afternoon hours on Thursday.
Clouds will begin to break up Friday afternoon and by Saturday, all of the guidance agrees that the front will be clear of the area. A cold pool will push temperatures into the 40s and lower 50s by Saturday morning, and also keep temperatures suppressed into the upper 50s and lower 60s on Saturday. Strong subsidence and cooler air over the area should also lead to clearing skies through the day on Saturday.
