9/17 – Rob Knight’s “Above Seasonal Temps” Morning Forecast
Again we find our area in between two different air masses. This time the moisture flow is located roughly along the Miss River and west. It looks like another hot and dry day as the above seasonal temperatures will be back through the area. The HEAT INDEX will top around 103F for some areas mainly east of the Miss River. Cloud cover should help keep other areas cooler to the west.
We will see a back door front move into the area by Thursday. As the tropical disturbance over the NW gulf begins to unwind after coming ashore, there may be enough moisture provided to the front to give some much needed rain to the whole area by Thursday and Friday. The surface high-pressure then looks to settle over the gulf south by the middle of next week. One or two tropical waves look to traverse the southern gulf next week, but as the stacked high settles in over the area, any wave capable of producing a disturbance would likely continue moving west keeping the area dry and hot.
