12/23 – Brantly’s “Chilly Tonight, Warming Up Tomorrow” Thursday Night Forecast
Lows temperatures may be cooler than originally anticipated tonight. Expect lows to range from the upper 30s to near 40 inland to the lower/mid 40s at the coast. Some patchy frost may be possible late tonight mainly over interior areas.
Very pleasant weather with high pressure covering much of the Southeast U.S. will continue for the next several days. This high pressure system will move eastward, causing a slight increase of winds, slowly bringing in more moisture to the area. A warming trend will continue although low temperatures will be still relatively cool due to efficient overnight cooling, especially for inland areas through Christmas Eve. For Christmas Day, it will be rather warm and humid for the time of year with high temperatures in the upper 70s and possibly touching the 80s.
Strong upper level high pressure basically sticks in the Gulf of Mexico the extended forecast period. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm through the end of December along with unusually humidity. Some cold fronts look like they will try to push southward, but most models show that they are not look likely to make it to Gulf Coast.
