3/12 – Rob’s Cooler/Sunny Workweek Forecast
Yesterday`s cold front is well into the central Gulf of Mexico with high pressure extended from the Canada down to Kansas. The cloud cover associated with the cold front was quickly departing the area, but some cold advection clouds were approaching from the north.
With another strong surface low developing along the Atlantic Coast, the surface high pressure over the Plains States really doesn’t have much of anywhere to go over the next 3 days. It will slowly sag southeast and be centered over southern Mississippi by Wednesday night. This means dry weather through midweek.
Main forecast issue will be temperatures, with a north wind providing for 5-10 degrees below seasonal conditions. No freezing temperatures are expected, but there will be several mornings where some patchy frost can`t be ruled out in the normally colder, well protected, locations.
After a chilly start Thursday morning, temperatures moderate to near normal for Thursday and Thursday night, then above normal for the weekend. High temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s are expected for the weekend into Monday, with lows upper 50s to mid 60s. Rain chances will be rather low for Friday into the St. Patrick’s weekend.
