6/7 – Rob Knight’s Friday Morning Forecast
Numbers will be different today than yesterday while others remain relatively unchanged. The area is once again under a low-end threat for SEVERITY…with the odds of getting each mode differing, putting large hail and damaging winds the main culprits while flooding and tornadoes come in second place.
Southerly winds that drove a quick surge of water shoreward yesterday have eased from 20-30 mph yesterday to 15 mph for today. Due to this, tides have lowered this morning but we are still in spring tide and southwest winds will help keep water against coastal areas.
The area of low-pressure will meander around the Gulf South for a few more days until the upper-level flow begins to change the pattern. A cold front will push through the area Tuesday morning providing for north winds.
A frontal passage this time of year normally spells HEAT, but the front is showing up with actual cool air advection dropping high temps back into the low to mid 80s for Tuesday and lows in the lower 60s over the northern portion of the area Tuesday night. This is not totally unheard of, but it isn’t common.
Rain chances should slowly lower over the next several days and quite possibly be almost zero by mid-next week.
