3/10 – Rob Knight’s “Warm & Humid” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast
As we continue into the middle of the week, we remain in a rather calm, dry and warm weather pattern thanks to high pressure anchored just offshore the eastern US coastline. With the northern Gulf coast on the southwestern periphery of this surface ridge, deepening Gulf return flow has set up across the region.
Beyond today going straight into Thursday and Friday, main story will be staying firm on a much warmer bias as opposed to model guidance as the upper 70s to lower 80s. Can’t rule out a few mid-80s, especially Thursday and Friday as high-pressure becomes anchored into the western Gulf. This will help keep all storm systems well to the north through the rest of the week. Overall, the rest of the week can be summed up as dry and warm.
High pressure will slide east on Saturday remaining over the southeastern CONUS and eastern Gulf. This will bring dry and mild conditions to the region through at least Sunday morning. A deep low pressure system will move eastward from the Rockies into the Plains on Sunday. High pressure will slide off the eastern seaboard Sunday night as low pressure system moves into the middle Mississippi Valley bringing a cold front into region by Sunday night. This will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms into the forecast area Sunday night and Monday. Due to the track potentially being well to our north…any severe weather would be too early to determine with the best potential being far northern zones.
