12/10 – Rob’s “Big Changes Ahead” Afternoon Forecast
Clear skies, calm winds and strong radiational cooling will result in areas of…
widespread dense fog overnight that will likely persist until around 9 am Friday.
After the fog and associated low stratus clouds burn off, Friday afternoon clouds will be on the increase. A potent disturbance/cold front is expected to push east/southeast into Arklatex region Friday night and the central Gulf coast region on Saturday. This will bring increased rain chances area-wide Saturday morning before drier air ends the rain chances from the west Saturday afternoon and evening. A few embedded t-storms will also be possible.
A secondary cold front will move across the area Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. The anticipated drier conditions in the wake of the Saturday cold front will be short lived as the chance of showers and some thunderstorms will increase by Sunday afternoon and evening as a weak surface low pressure area and stronger cold front move through the region.
