3/1 – Rob Knight’s “Fat Tuesday” Morning Forecast
The next few days will be mainly a temp and dew-point forecast. No rain anywhere in sight during the workweek with the greatest impacts likely to the fire weather community as relative humidity values could be quite low again this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon.
As we head into Wednesday and Thursday, winds will be highly dependent on daytime heating. Once we get to midday the seabreeze should begin to kick in and if it moves north through your location dew-points will rebound some. Areas that remain north of the seabreeze will continue to remain quite dry and could lead to a concern with respect fire weather conditions.
High pressure will continue to shift to the east opening the region to moist air advection from the Gulf while a slowly developing low level disturbance starts to set up over the western CONUS. With this set up, we could see the return of rain possibly as early as this weekend. The main time frame for this does look to be Sunday, but that still does not look great at this time.
