6/18 – Rob’s “Humidity Returns” Afternoon Forecast
High-pressure north will continue to bring lower humidity to the area. The upper level low anchored over the southeast US this week will finally be breaking down while a ridge moves in over the northern Gulf coast this weekend. This will keep the area dry Saturday and bump up temps slightly.
The high-pressure center should continue shifting east Sunday which start the end of the areas recent dry period. Scattered convection will be more likely west of I-55 from Baton Rouge metro to Houma. Progressing into next week, a significantly wetter pattern will develop locally.
A broad disturbance will dig deep into the mid-section of the country while slowly tracking east, taking most of the week to get from the mid-west to the Appalachian Mountains. Thus: expecting high rain chances each day beginning Monday onward. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible at times.
