2/3 – The Chief’s “Clearing Skies” Friday Morning Forecast
Today will bring clearing skies early this morning with windy conditions through today as high pressure settles in from the north. The biggest concern for the weekend is going to be morning lows Saturday. We will be under northwest flow aloft while high pressure at the surface slides east from MS Valley across the OH and TN Valleys and over the Appalachians. This will wedge down into the northwestern Gulf and could provide a good enough setup for a favorable radiational cooling night.
Initially the low level winds stay up all night, especially in the areas where this setup generally allows a few points to cool very efficiently. Winds will finally try to drop off around 3 AM and if they can for a few hours before sunrise temps could plummet those last few hours. Another system will slide west to east Sunday providing for upper level clouds be rainfall is not expected.
