12/5 – The Chief’s “Very Warm, Humid” Monday Morning Forecast
Overall a much quieter day ahead with far less impacts for most of the area. Once again the main problem has been more commerce impacted due to low clouds and fog both over land and sea. So for the next few days the main problem is likely going to be a fog and low cloud concern. Mid-level pattern will remain unchanged with high pressure sitting over the Gulf providing basically weak zonal flow across the north-central Gulf Coast states through the short term. The biggest features to impact our region will be the stalled front retreating back to the north as a warm front. With temps expected to drop into the 60s over inland areas and dewpoints in the upper 50s and mid 60s likely trying to recover to at least the 60s everywhere overnight.
As the warm front returns north we may start to see some warmer air showers return Monday but overall again outside of fog potential the next few days not really expecting any significant rain. We will begin to warm up again with highs likely in the mid-70s to lower 80s by Tuesday and likely a few degrees warmer on Wednesday.
