12/31 – Rob Knight’s “New Year’s Celebration” Forecast

An area of high-pressure will remain in control of our weather today and tomorrow, with chilly morning lows and highs generally in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

By early Wednesday, an upper-low will slowly marching east across northern Mexico to help spread patchy mid to upper-level cloud cover across the area. As advertised for several days now, I’m still holding firm over the idea of lower precip coverage on Wednesday.

From here beginning early Thursday morning, things are becoming a bit more interesting now. As a system from the pacific races east, it will develop another system along the Texas/Mexico coast: flowing an abundance of moisture to the NE…along the Mississippi gulf coast. This slow moving system will bring the threat for heavy rainfall to eventually spread east Thursday afternoon, evening and through early Friday across the MS coastline, where models paint a large 1-3 inch swath of storm total precipitation across the area.

Friday will bring an end to the rain around midday/afternoon as high-pressure will move back in to shape the first weekend of the New Year.
