2/5 – Rob’s “Warm, Humid & Foggy” Morning Forecast
A warmer and wetter pattern is expected to be in place through the first half of the week as high-pressure ridge builds across the entire southeastern United States. Moisture levels have already been on the increase as a rare Spring-like pattern continues. High humidity combined with light and consistent southeasterly flow is aiding in the inland spread of sea fog into the area. This will continue through the morning hours except for locations that see showers. The rain will cause the fog to dissipate, but only temporarily. Once the showers exit, reduced visibility will return.
All that moisture in place and a weak disturbance moving through has sparked showers west of us. Morning precip chances will be on the high side with the rest of day not much better. An isolated t-storm or 2 will be possible today as well, mainly closer to the coast. The presence of rain and fog in the morning may slow temps from warming, but by afternoon they should quickly reach upper 60s to low 70s. Cloud cover will be increasing through the overnight period, which is looking like will be the change needed to mitigate fog development. A broad disturbance tracking across the mid-section of the country will send a cold front through the region Thursday night. This will bring widespread showers and much cooler temps through the region briefly…before the warm-up begins Saturday night
