6/13 – Rob Knight’s “Low Humidity” Morning Forecast

A reinforcement of the drier continental airmass and surface high pressure, building from the southern Plains into the lower Mississippi Valley will continue through Saturday morning. As the surface high pressure slides east on Friday, southerly winds will return by afternoon which will start to bring humidity levels up a bit, however it is expected to remain mostly sunny and dry with highs warming to the upper 80s. Warmer low temperatures in the upper 60s to upper 70s are expected Friday night.

Saturday will transition back to more of the typical summer conditions locally: high humidity levels, a chance of mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms and highs in the upper 80s to around 90. An expansive surface high/ridge will be centered off the mid Atlantic coast which will maintain southerly surface winds across the central Gulf coast region.

Daily chances of showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through the period. This is due to a continuation of southerly surface winds and a series of minor disturbances moving across the southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley. Temperatures are not expected to change much from day to day with highs remaining in the upper 80s to around 90 and lows in the 70s.
