2/12 – Rob’s “Midday News” Monday Afternoon Forecast
The cold front which affected the area is now east of Tallahassee Florida and moving east.extended from Mobile to the Central Gulf of Mexico continues to move east. A surface high-pressure will move eastward allowing for surface winds will gradually go from northerly today, to northeast to east on Tuesday, and finally southeast on Wednesday. As the mid and upper level flow remains southwesterly, moisture will be riding up and over the cooler air, keeping lower cloud cover across the area. Do not expect to see much, if any breaks in the cloud cover prior to Wednesday.
As impulses move through the mid-level flow, there will be a few periods of showers on Tuesday and Wednesday. Rain amounts through Wednesday generally less than one quarter inch. Guidance is carrying signals for fog Tuesday night as warmer air returns. Not likely to see a great deal of temperature recovery today, maybe 5-10 degrees at best. Thursday is likely to be the best day of the week weather-wise as upper ridging will be at its strongest across the area. We are likely to see at least some sunshine with temperatures nearing 80 degrees in many areas. Beyond Thursday, models are getting a little closer on the timing of the northern stream shortwave pushing the next cold front through the area. Just a quick shot of cooler air for Saturday, with warmer temperatures returning next Sunday and Monday.
