12/05 – Rob Knight’s “Partly Cloudy” Thursday Morning Forecast


Quiet weather continues across the region as surface high pressure dominates the southeastern United States. The airmass in place over the area will moderate slightly today, with highs a degree or 2 warmer than yesterday. Expect a very pleasant day with temps in the mid/upper 60s with partly cloudy skies.

A weak disturbance racing across the lower Mississippi Valley Friday will bring a few showers across the area. Coverage should be upwards of 40 to 50% but not much in the way of rain accumulation… mainly less than a tenth of an inch. Before the cooler air moves in on with the front associated with this disturbance, temps should warm quite a bit on Friday.

Expect highs to max out in the mid-70s. Not records but not too far off either. The cooler air will then move in Friday night into Saturday, which will bring temps down to slightly below climatological normal. Shallowness and quick speed of the disturbance means those cool temps will only last for a day before beginning to moderate. Sunday will bring a continuation of Saturday, albeit
slightly warmer.

A much more amplified upper level disturbance will move into the midsection of the country Monday, before lifting northeast Wednesday. A cold front associated with this feature will move through the forecast area Tuesday morning. Expecting showers ahead of, along, and post frontal. As the rain exits Wednesday, the rest of the forecast period will be on the cool side with no to low rain chances.
