4/25 – Rob Martin’s “April’s Home Stretch” Monday Night Forecast

Heavier showers ahead of a crawling cold front have mostly dissipated this evening with lack of daytime heating. It will remain mild tonight.

Another disturbance will ride along the main front and track across the MS River Valley early Tuesday, which is the final push that gets the front to the Gulf of Mexico. This, along with early heating after sunrise, could trigger a few showers along/south of I-10 between daybreak and 2 PM, but that’s about it. A drier air mass moves in Tuesday night into Wednesday. This will knock down temps to around 80 degrees, which is about normal for this time of year.

High-pressure will be the main feature across the Gulf South Wednesday through Friday.  With this strong ridging in place, sinking air can be expected throughout the atmospheric column.  This will result in largely clear skies, lower humidity, and a larger than average day-night temperature range early in the week.  Highs will warm into the low to mid 80s as we reach week’s end..a result of the high moving to our east, setting up southerly flow. Lows will cool into the 50s and lower 60s Tuesday through Thursday night, warming bit by bit through week, finally ending up around 70 sometime next weekend.
Humidity will ramp up next weekend too, and it’ll start to feel more like summer around that time.
