6/6 – Rob Knight’s “Improved Conditions” Forecast
The combination of both drier air and subsidence will result in warmer temperatures in the lower 90s today going into the weekend. Tonight will see high-pressure take firm control of the Gulf South, with clear skies and mild temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
High-pressure will continue to intensify tomorrow and remain in place through Friday. At most, an isolated thunderstorm may try to develop along the sea-breeze boundary that form each day. 20 percent or less is in the forecast to reflect this very limited risk of rain.
By Sunday into next week, high-pressure should continue to push further west, and the area will be opened up to a northerly flow pattern in the mid and upper levels. This pattern will allow for weak impulses to slide through the region each day, and serve as a forcing mechanism for increased t-storm activity. Temperatures should also moderate a bit due to the increase in humidity and shower and thunderstorm activity. Highs should rise into the upper 80s and lower 90s, as overnight lows will actually increase a bit into the low to mid 70s due to higher dew-points across the region.
