11/17 – Rob Knight’s Friday “Morning News” Forecast
Not as much in the way of fog this morning although there are a few sites reporting 1/2 mile visibilities. Overall, the coverage of the fog is not as bad and therefore will not issue any advisories this morning. Otherwise, no significant changes made to the forecast in respect to the weekend and the cold front that should be moving into the northwestern parts of the area by Saturday afternoon and moving through the southern parts by Saturday night.
A rapidly moving cold front will move into and through the area Saturday afternoon/night. Expect warmer temperatures and elevating humidity Saturday with minimal effects Saturday evening/night with frontal passage. Model guidance has come into a little better agreement with respect to what happens after the frontal passage early next week. While there are still some overall differences, more of the anticipated rainfall from a system over the Gulf stays off the coast. Therefore, precipitation chances have been lowered a bit early next week in some locations, especially further away from the coast.
