2/6 – Rob Knight’s “Spring-Like Pattern” Afternoon Forecast
An upper level high-pressure centered in southern Mexico will expand northward today. Subsidence from the ridge will cut off rain from the area. Guidance outputs both are below 15% for locations across the forecast area. Temperatures will respond to the increasing heights by topping out in the mid-70s.
A broad area of low-pressure will track across the mid-section of the country will send a strong cold front through the region Thursday night. Models are in good agreement on the timing, suggesting passage beginning around 6 p.m. Thursday. Once the boundary passes, expect highs and lows to drop about 20 degrees by Friday and Saturday. They will begin rebounding late this weekend as well as a return of rain likely by Sunday. Early next week looks to be just like this week with a few day of high dew-points and increasing rain chances before a cold front swings through mid/late week.
