12/16 – Rob Knight’s “Post Frontal Passage” Mid-Morning Forecast

In the wake of the early morning cold front, breezy conditions will occur though this evening before winds taper-off. Any significant breaks in the cloud cover probably won’t occur until late in the day, if they occur at all. Should eventually see a clearing trend overnight as the upper support for the system move through the area with high pressure moving in. A good bit of the northern viewing area north of the interstate should drop to pretty close to freezing by sunrise Thursday.

The next disturbance will move through the plains state Friday for surface flow to become onshore during the day. This will allow temperatures to moderate by about 5 degrees or so for high temperatures Friday. Moisture levels will increase late in the day and Friday night, which will be reflected by a 10-15 degree increase in overnight lows for Saturday morning.

Another cold front is expected to cross the area this weekend. Best clustering would indicate late Saturday into Sunday. There is a modest increase of moisture right ahead of the front, so expecting some showers through most of the weekend. Most guidance has it pushing offshore Sunday so that should limit any heavy rain potential. Moving into early next week, weak high pressure builds into the north Gulf coast region and dry and seasonable temperatures should return for a couple days.
