12/08 – Brantly’s “Spotty Wet Weather” Wednesday Night Forecast

A stationary front sitting off the northern Gulf Coast will return later tonight as a warm front. This front will lift into the area, creating southerly winds. Areas of patchy fog are likely for many areas tonight into Thursday morning, with a few areas of dense fog possible. Some light showers may move onshore Thursday morning before the warm front moves in and brings a better chance for some rain showers. Rain chances are generally in the 20-40% range Thursday afternoon before quickly dropping off later in the evening. Friday will be dry and much warmer, with high temps looking to hit the upper 70s or even the low 80s for many areas.

Our next cold front will move down from the northwest through our area during the day on Saturday. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue throughout Saturday, before drying out into the evening. The potential for strong or severe storms is something that will need to be watched over the next couple days as model guidance has been a little back and forth on the severe potential. Forecast changes are likely to come over the next couple days as models continue to refine the forecast.

After the cold front moves through, high pressure looks to dominate the forecast for a few days. This drops relative humidity values and keeps rain chances very low. Temperatures turn cooler behind the front, with high temps trending in the low 60s to low 70s. Low temperatures into Sunday morning, may drop into the mid to upper 30s for some northern areas.
