6/3 – The Chief’s “Cold Frontal Passage” Friday morning Forecast
A cold front sagging into our area is expected to stall through the weekend before slightly retrograding. Isolated/scattered showers/t-storms are expected today especially with daytime heating. Once we get into Friday night, it will dry out a little bit although can’t rule out our general daily diurnally driven thunderstorms during the early/late afternoon. A disturbance will pass through the area Sunday which slightly bumps up the precip chances on Sunday. It’ll then dry out again for at least through the middle of next week.
Tropics wise, the National Hurricane Center will initiate advisories on now Potential Tropical Cyclone One. Looking on satellite imagery it definitely looks a little better organized although wind shear aloft is shearing it and looking pretty lopsided. This system is expected to stay in the southeast Gulf of Mexico and western Caribbean moving northeastward towards southern Florida. No impacts are expected for Louisiana and Mississippi but PTC1 is definitely a reminder that hurricane season is here.
