5/26 – The Chief’s “Very Nice” Friday Morning Forecast
Relative humidity has been rather low the past few days…and that trend will continue heading into the weekend. The current weak upper low pressure over the FL panhandle will move little over the weekend while the base of the upper trough extending from the NE over to Illinois will begin to close off into a new low pressure system will sink toward the upper low that will find itself over GA/AL. This will simply reinforce the upper low as they merge over the weekend. This will keep the SE CONUS stormy while keeping new dry air surges moving through here keeping these dry but warm days going well into next week. The next surge comes Saturday and a few storms may accompany this.
The upper low over the SE CONUS will get kicked east and out of the picture by Wednesday. This will allow the moisture and rain to move back into the area Wed night into Thursday. A weak disturbance will move into the area and park over the northern gulf coast. This will keep a very rainy diurnally driven pattern day after day into next weekend. This looks to be a very normal summer showers/t-storm distribution.
