12/5 – Rob Knight’s “Warming Trend” Midday News Forecast


High-pressure continues to move towards our area from the NW. After another COLD NIGHT, the warmer more humid air mass will begin moving in early Thursday. There is a hint of foggy conditions developing Friday morning along and west/south of this gradient but is not clear whether it will be a low cloud deck or fog.

The gradient will fluctuate from day to day until a surface low moves along it with another surge of cool dry air behind it. This system will move through rapidly and most if not all weather associated with it should be Saturday. Heavy rainfall should be widespread with amounts from 1 to 3 inches expected. Localized area of flash flooding will be possible in poorly drained areas.

As far as severe weather associated, numbers are not impressive as we move from south to north. Long story short, a severe thunderstorm cannot be ruled out along the coast and depending on how far north this boundary will move, the risk would increase for those areas as well. At the moment, it’s just too far out to tell. High pressure should settle back across the area for at least the early half of next week before the next system begins to affect the area later next week.
