2/6 – Rob’s “Disruptive Weather” Morning Forecast
Dense fog continues to be the biggest impact to the region. Local observations show dew-points in the mid to upper 60s. This combined with water temps in the 50s has been and continues to conducive for sea fog development. Locations along the coastal waters will be the most impacted and thus where the Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for. An upper level high-pressure centered in southern Mexico will expand northward today. Subsidence from the ridge will cut off rain from the area.
Temperatures will respond 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.
