9/28 – Rob Knight’s “Moisture Returns” Morning Forecast
An upper level high-pressure is developing along the Mississippi Valley from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. The moisture recovery has occurred since yesterday evening. A disturbance in the NW’tern GOM will continue to slowly move to the NW towards E’tern Texas. Showers and t-storms will affect the area through Thursday morning with low severe potential, but gusty winds is possible.
The extended period will show a drying trend as compared to the short term portion of the forecast, but not completely dry. The disturbance in the NW’tern GOM will shift to the north of the area by Thursday night, but not really scouring out moisture to any great extent. The next in the series of disturbances will pull out of the southern Rockies across the central Plains States on Saturday, into the middle Mississippi River Valley. Most of the region will remain dry with low end rain potential returning Sunday into next week.
