12/15 – Rob Knight’s “Warmer” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast
This afternoon will be fairly quiet as high pressure remains the dominant feature of the short term forecast for the next couple days. High temperatures today warm back up into the low/mid 70s with dew points in the mid-60s, making for some muggy conditions. An upper level disturbance will begin to lift northeast towards the Great Lakes region with an associated front well to the north. Kicking off the weekend, we remain in a prominent warm and moist air mass out ahead of an approaching cold front to our northwest. The very buoyant air mass along with this approaching system will bring a few showers Friday afternoon. Saturday will bring scattered t-storms especially afternoon as the front slows to the NW. The front will stall to the NW as rain will continue overnight into Sunday. Rain potential will continue Sunday and Monday before the system gets a kick and moves to the NE by Tuesday.
