4/22 – Rob Knight’s Monday Morning Forecast
The forecast remains quiet today and through Wednesday as we will remain under the influence of high-pressure to our east keeping the region dry. Heading into Tuesday the area of high-pressure will begin to slide east, as the return flow will become more predominant.
Wednesday will be a transition day as a system slowly begins to move into western TX late Wednesday morning. Wednesday night we will finally begin to see some impacts from our approaching system as an organized area of showers and thunderstorms will likely be ongoing across TX and move into LA overnight. It may begin to approach the northwestern portions of the area during the early morning hours but should weaken as runs into the high-pressure. There is some concern on the coverage and intensity Thursday and Thursday evening. It is beginning to look like a large area of t-storms will either move along the LA coast or develop along the central and southeast LA coast and in the Gulf. Activity will continue to work to the east overnight Thursday night and may actually taper off completely before sunrise.
Friday we will still have the upper low/tough over the region and the cooler mid-levels temps will be in place. As the region heats up we could see scattered afternoon showers. Another quiet weekend is in store but don’t look for the cool down that we saw this weekend.
