2/8 – Rob’s “Improved Conditions” Thursday Morning Forecast
It’s a MUCH COLDER start to the day with temps about 20-25 degrees colder than yesterday morning along with extensive cloud coverage. Surface high pressure will be advecting colder air into the region throughout the day. This will keep temps from warming up much more than about 60 for many locations. Breezy NW winds will make it feel cooler than that however.
After a bit of sunshine today, cloud cover moving in from the Gulf should reach northern portions of the area/region by midnight. This will lead to a fairly short period of time for cooling with lows reached by about that time and holding steady to slightly increasing by daybreak on Friday.
Friday through this weekend is still looking to be an active one. An upper level disturbance will be anchored along the NW’tern GOM. This will set the stage for several bouts of rain beginning Friday afternoon and carrying over through Monday morning. Models indicating 1-2+ inches of rainfall with more than likely the NWS coming out with a FLASH FLOOD WATCH before Saturday morning.
