6/19 – Rob Knight’s Tuesday Morning Forecast
The effects of a tropical wave meandering across southeast Texas, extends well across Louisiana into Mississippi.
With so much moisture in place, it should be easy for numerous showers and thunderstorms again today, mainly to our west…with minimal activity along the viewing area
On Wednesday, high-pressure will spread SW across the Gulf of Mexico from Florida westward. Although subsiding air will move in from the Gulf, we will still have enough moisture in place for slight rain chances around 20/30%.
An upper low will track into the Central Plains Wednesday and Thursday. This will cause the ridge over the Gulf to retreat slightly. T-Storm coverage will likely exist with highest precipitation chances in the northern portion of the state, lowest along the coastline. The upper low will lift northeast ending this week, thus allowing the ridge over the Gulf to spread north over the region this weekend. Subsequently, rain chances will drop quite a bit and temps should be on the rise. I have kept previous precipitation chances of 20% with slightly increased high temperatures into the lower 90s.
