4/19 – Rob Knight’s “Good Friday” Morning Forecast
A surface low-pressure is near the Middle Tennessee-Kentucky border with a cold front southward to near Pensacola. Any precipitation remaining over the area currently shouldn’t be much more than a few sprinkles. However, there are a few showers over east Texas that are likely associated with an impulse rotating through the upper levels.
A cold pool still appears to be sufficient to produce isolated showers today, especially across the northern half of the area this afternoon. The Low-pressure will move eastward quickly, and we should see any clouds and showers depart the area shortly after sunset tonight. The remainder of the Easter weekend will be dry. Temperatures will be unseasonably cool today and tonight, roughly 10-15 degrees below normal. Some moderation in temperatures for Saturday and Sunday, but still won`t quite make it back to normal this weekend.
The first half of next week looks to be dry with near normal temperatures. I expect a period of showers and thunderstorms as a disturbance moves across the area towards the latter part of the next workweek.
