Beginning a brief warming trend
Each day through the reminder of the week will feature warmer temperatures before the next cold front arrives this weekend.
Today and Tonight: Your Wednesday will be peaceful with winds slackened and sun shining. High temperatures will warm into the upper 50s. Overnight won’t be as chilly as previous nights. We’ll project a low around 40 degrees under clear skies.
What’s Ahead? The week will end with above average temperatures. In response to sun and southwesterly winds, Thursday highs will run for the low 70s. Again on Friday, after a start around 50 degrees, a mostly sunny afternoon will offer a high in the low 70s. A few clouds may be possible late as another weak cold front comes into the area. The follow-up result will be cooler air returning for the weekend—which is looking dry and sunny.
Forecast Discussion: A surface high pressure is slowly migrating from the Central Gulf Coast to the Southeast United States. In doing so, local winds will begin to take on a southwesterly component through the overnight hours into the rest of the week. The tangible result will be much milder temperatures with highs reaching for the low 70s on both Thursday and Friday. As the regions sits in a persistent northwesterly flow aloft, in between a western ridge and eastern trough, another cold front will come into the area on Saturday. A strong 1045mb surface high pressure and associated northwesterly surface winds will send chilly air towards the Gulf Coast yet again. Expect below average temperatures Saturday Night and Sunday. By Monday, a region of positive vorticity advection ahead of a shortwave trough in the Mid-South will move a cold front into the area. This system should be potent enough to produce a few showers.
