9/22 – Rob Knight’s “Cold Frontal Passage” Wednesday Morning Forecast
A cold front will continue to move offshore with cooler and drier air moving into the area. It will certainly be breezy this afternoon as the cooler and drier air works into the area, but don’t think winds will be quite strong enough to justify a Wind Advisory. Once we get the clouds out of the area this morning, expect dry weather and sunny skies through the end of the week.
The most noticeable change, of course, will be the cooler temperatures and much lower humidity levels. Likely to see about a 10 degree rebound in temperatures during the day today with highs upper 70s to perhaps mid-80s, with the warmest readings on the Mississippi Coast. Dew points in the lower 70s early this morning will fall to the mid-50s this afternoon, and could even fall into the upper 40s across the northern half of the area Thursday into Friday.
The overall forecast for the extended time frame is still expected to continue to remain pleasant. Expect high temperatures to gradually climb back into the mid-80s, with dew-points rebounding into the 60s early next week.
