6/26 – Rob Knight’s “Drier Conditions” Friday Morning Forecast
An upper level low-pressure over the Ohio and Tennessee valleys will slide eastward off the eastern seaboard by this evening. Weak upper level high-pressure along with a surface high-pressure will setup over the north Florida and south Georgia regions on Friday. The ridge will gradually expand over the next 24 hours bringing drier conditions to the region through Saturday with only slight chances of afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Clockwise flow around NE Gulf High along with another weak disturbance will bring precipitation chances back up to around 40-50 percent for the weekend with mainly afternoon and evening thunderstorms expected. The pattern is expected to slowly dry out early next week with the Bermuda high remaining in place bringing more typical summer time conditions with temperatures rebounding into the lower 90s with 30 to 40 precipitation chances for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms throughout the period.
