03/02 Ryan’s “Chilly & Dry” Thursday Night Forecast


It may have been warm and humid over the last several days, but we’ll see some very chilly & dry conditions now and through the weekend. A few clouds remained in the upper levels during the afternoon and were barely lingering over the coastline as I write these words (10:45 PM). These clouds will completely clear out during the chilly & dry overnight hours, where we can expect an evening low near 43 on the waterfront with upper 30s possible inland. Tomorrow’s daytime high will be sunny and warm, but still in the upper 60s, high near 67. This pattern holds until the early morning hours on Sunday, when clouds lingering along the outer periphery of the high pressure center begin to move inland, and moderate onshore flow begins to bring higher temperatures and humidity. Expect the cloud cover, humidity, and rain chances to increase steadily from Sunday afternoon into Tuesday night, when a cold front is expected to move through the Southeast. There isn’t much agreement between models in regards to the timing or strength of this next system, but I personally feel it will quickly move through the area and we’ll begin seeing clearing as early as Wednesday morning. More time and data will help clear up this forecast, so we’ll continue to update with the latest information as the system continues to develop next week.
