1. For this afternoon a dry slot in behind the main rain band will move into the region allowing for a decrease in showers and storms this afternoon. Highs should be in the upper 60’s to lower 70’s across the region with winds shifting from south ahead of the front to northwest behind the front later tonight. The frontal passage will allow low temps to fall into the upper 40’s overnight.
2. This system will be slow to exit the region without a strong high pressure right behind it as a result low clouds and drizzle will be around on Saturday with much cooler temps behind the front with many of us having a tough time reaching the mid 50’s with the northwest flow. nam model image of Saturday.
3. Sunday looks much better across the mid south for weekend plans as high pressure strengthens over the region and the flow becomes southerly by the afternoon allowing for highs to reach the mid and upper 60’s after starting off the day in the 40’s. With the high pressure in control skies should mostly sunny though a slight increase in clouds is possible late ahead of the next front which should arrive early next week. gfs model for Sunday.
4. I’ll take a look at the long range for us tommorow.
