11/17 Ryan’s “Finally” Friday Afternoon Forecast
We’ve seen nice, but similar weather all week long and we’re finally going to see significant changes after a Saturday afternoon cold front. Don’t expect much of a change tonight though, as the temperature and moisture continue to climb, but fog will be limited by slightly increasing winds. Clouds move in overnight, and thicken as a fast-moving front races Southeast from the Great Plains. There won’t be much mid-level moisture for this system to work with so outside of the increase in cloud cover and some scattered showers I don’t expect much action as it moves through. The clouds will have already begun clearing by the overnight hours on Saturday and Sunday morning, and temperatures will drop through Sunday and finish in the lower 60s on Monday. Sunday night will be the coldest we’ll see for this week with coastal locations reaching the upper 30s, and inland areas flirting with freezing. Monday and Tuesday will be sunny, clear, and drier; but a few short-wave features will move through rather quickly and push the ridge further East, meaning “return flow” sets up a day or so early. Clouds and low rain chances move in by Wednesday.
