12/06 – Brantly’s “Temperature Roller Coaster” Monday Night Forecast

The cold front moving through the region is expected to push offshore this evening and should remain draped over the northern Gulf into the day Tuesday. Lighter rain and isolated thunderstorms will still linger for some time behind the front before rain chances diminish from the north later this evening and overnight. A very noticeable drop in temperatures from the unseasonably warm values of the last couple days will be felt later with tonight’s lows, which are expected to reach the mid 40s north to mid to upper 50s south.

Scattered showers may linger into Wednesday morning, but then a dry push should make the rain chances end in the afternoon across land areas. Models don’t have a lot of confidence on how much coverage of showers and thunderstorms will develop Thursday, but we are maintaining a 30-40% chance of rain in the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to be lowest for highs on Tuesday with upper 50s to lower 60s common, but then warming back to upper 60s to lower 70s Wednesday and mid 70s to around 80 on Thursday.
