3/30 – Rob Knight’s “Monday/Workweek” Morning Forecast
A frontal boundary is currently near the Mississippi coast with a good bit of upper level clouds moving across the area early this morning. The main concern will be the threat of T-Storms late tonight and Tuesday morning. The boundary will lift northward today and tonight as upper impulse moves from the southwestern states this morning through the Tennessee Valley Tuesday and Tuesday night. A surface low will track along Interstate 20, and be south of Atlanta by midday Tuesday, with a trailing cold front about to clear the area at that time. A few strong storms could affect our interior counties with timing likely to be during the early morning hours from the Pearl River eastward. Precipitation should depart the area early afternoon.
We will continue trend of going above guidance on temperatures in this unseasonable pattern. We will need to watch high temperatures behind the front tomorrow. High pressure will build in on Wednesday with dry and a return to near seasonal temperatures with highs in the lower to mid-70s and lows from the upper 40s inland to the middle to upper 50s near the coast. High-pressure Thursday will keep dry conditions with a warming trend bringing high temperatures into the middle to upper 70s on Thursday and Friday.
