8/29 – Rob Knight’s “Post-Frontal” Thursday Morning Forecast
In the wake of a cold front, lower humidity will make for a few lovely days along the gulf coast. Hot temperatures will continue under sunny skies. The moisture will start returning from the southeast on Saturday with surface high shifting to the east coast. Any precipitation Saturday should be east of a Biloxi the Florida panhandle.
A weak tropical wave forecast to move westward across the central Gulf of Mexico Sunday and Labor Day, with shower and thunderstorm chances/coverage increasing Saturday night into Sunday, going with likely precipitation chances for much of the area Sunday. The wave should be west of the area by mid-day Labor Day. Beyond Labor Day, forecast will be dependent on the eventual track of Hurricane Dorian. Current forecast has Dorian over central Florida Monday night. There is potential for Dorian to reach at least the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. For now, haven’t made major changes beyond Monday, but forecast confidence is rather uncertain for mid-week.
Precipitation should hold temperatures in the 80s on Sunday, with near to slightly above normal temperatures early next week.
