2/1 – Rob’s “Warm/Humid” 1st Day of February Forecast
Cloudy skies continue as a weak cold front to the north will push through the viewing area overnight…with just a few showers. The front will be south by sunrise but the clouds will linger, thinning to partly cloudy Friday afternoon.
Temps Friday should stay in the 50s with some 60s possibly at coastal locations, with VERY WINDY conditions. Temps will still get into the low to mid 30s for low temps by Friday night. A rapid return flow will begin late Friday night into Saturday morning bringing some rain back to the area Saturday into Saturday night. The heaviest rainfall should stay near the coast and offshore as well as to the north of the area. But a few locations will still observe some moderate showers with the possibility of an isolated thunderstorm Saturday night into Sunday morning.
This system should be out of the area flushing the moisture with it by Monday morning. The next return flow ahead of the next cold front will start by Monday evening bringing rain back to the area as soon as Tuesday. There could be more thunderstorms with this system than we have been seeing lately as the dynamics associated with this front will be fully capable of producing many and helping a few to even become strong. But the timing and other details of this front will need to be further resolved as we approach next Wednesday.
