It has been a quiet and comfortable night with the cold front to our east already pushing east as much drier air moves in. Not much expected today with a few light showers this morning then clearing this afternoon. Dry conditions over much of the area should end the rain chances along the immediate coast before midday.
Even though the cold front will quickly push south of the area today the cold air is lagging well behind and we will not likely see the bulk of the advection until late this afternoon if not more so this evening and overnight. Temps will cool off nicely tonight but the coldest nights should be Tue night and Wed night and we could see a light freeze across some locations north of the 10/12 corridor.
Models continue to converge on a wet solution for the weekend. Just about everything is lining up for a rather heavy rain event Friday night and Saturday but there is one thing that does appear to be missing…and that is instability. With not much instability to work with we won’t quite tap into the overall potential however, this will be an efficient system and if there are any embedded thunderstorms, those will provide the best chance of seeing flooding rains. After this system moves east late Sat we will be in store for another strong cool down.
