3/5 – Rob Knight’s “Rain Overnight” Afternoon Forecast
The next disturbance will move southeast through the central Gulf coast region tonight with a weak surface front moving through the north central Gulf. I’m expected generally light to moderate rainfall amounts from mainly scattered showers with this system. Most of the higher rainfall amounts will be in the 1/4 to 1/2 inch range.
Saturday will be dry with mostly sunny skies returning as surface high pressure starts to build in from the northwest, and this clear/sunny weather will continue into Sunday. High temps will be near seasonal averages today with highs near 70, and then cool slightly on Saturday with highs mostly in the mid to upper 60s.
Next week, the central Gulf coast region should remain mostly dry and under the influence of the western periphery of surface high pressure, although a few showers could occur Wednesday and/or Thursday. Temperatures should be near to slightly above seasonal averages Monday and Tuesday then even warmer on Wednesday and Thursday.
