12/6 – Rob Knight’s “Gray & Mild” Friday Morning Forecast

0

A weak disturbance is currently racing across Oklahoma and will continue through the lower Mississippi Valley today, bringing a few showers across the area. Coverage should be around 30-40% but limited moisture should provide for less than a tenth of an inch accumulation. Before the cooler air moves in with the front associated with this disturbance, temps should warm quite a bit today. The cooler air will move in tonight into Saturday, but with the quick speed of this system, cool temps will only last for a day before beginning to moderate. Sunday will bring a continuation of Saturday, albeit slightly warmer. We could be a few lingering showers in the coastal waters as the cold front stalls in the northern Gulf. Most should remain offshore but possible to have isolated showers reach coastal counties.

A much more amplified upper level disturbance will move into the mid-section 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. The rain should quickly exit Wednesday with the rest of the forecast period yielding no to low rain chances and temps running several degrees below normal.
