3/22 – Rob’s Thursday “Midday News” Forecast
Nice spring weather is expected to continue today and Friday as high pressure over the region moves east as winds will switch to the south tonight/Friday.
A warm and then a cold front will ride north of the state through the weekend as an increasingly humid air mass moves in from the GOM. Areas of patchy dense fog will affect the region Sunday morning into next week. The main weather emphasis will be a corridor of high moisture content, persistent onshore flow next week from Texas through the mid-Mississippi Valley and into the Midwest states. The resulting consequence could be a very pronounced heavy rain episode north of I-20. A lack of focus, aside from possible lake and gulf breeze boundaries, will be a limiting factor to getting any appreciable rainfall over the forecast area through at least mid-next week.
As upper low finally nudges east, it appears to bring a Pacific front through the area late Thursday into Friday of next week. Easter weekend looks to be dry and spring-like nice.
