3/14 – Rob’s “Midday News” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast
After a COLD start…temps are warming nicely into the mid/upper 60s…
Overnight lows will again be chilly, with at least a small chance that a few well protected locations could drop down to freezing Thursday morning. At a minimum, a FROST ADVISORY will once again be in effect inland…and potentially a FREEZE WATCH. The next 48 hours should be relatively quiet as surface high moves eastward to be located off the Florida coast by Friday afternoon.
A strong system will move out of the Rockies on Friday into the Ohio River Valley and will bring isolated showers/t-storms Friday, especially in the afternoon/evening. In any case, the main forcing will be north of the area across northern Louisiana and Arkansas, with a SEVERE THREAT NW on the viewing area.
Frontal boundary remaining from Friday`s system will remain north of the area through the weekend. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop during the afternoons Saturday and Sunday and into Sunday evening. Somewhat less areal coverage on Monday, then mostly dry by midweek. Temperatures will be above normal from Saturday through at least Monday.
