Thursday, December 6 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Thursday! Temperatures are in the 20s across the area this morning under mostly clear skies. Despite the coldest start to a day this week, it will end up being warmer than the past few days thanks to the return of southerly flow as high pressure slides to our east. We’ll see partly cloudy skies for our Thursday with highs in the upper-50s and then mostly cloudy skies tonight with Friday morning lows in the upper-30s.

A few stray showers will be possible Friday afternoon all out ahead of the next storm system that will push across our area on Saturday. This means that rainfall will be likely throughout the day and into the evening on Saturday. It could be heavy at times on Saturday, leading to a minor flash flood threat mainly along and south of the I-20 corridor. A few leftover showers will be possible on Sunday, leading to a total of 1-3 inches of rain through the weekend.

Cold air will follow this storm system with temperatures steady in the 40s on Sunday and highs only in the upper-40s on Monday. It’s important to note that we stay above freezing until Tuesday morning, when any precipitation will be long gone. Speaking of Tuesday morning, that will be another cold one with temperatures in the 20s area-wide. Temperatures warm back into the low-50s by Tuesday and mid-50s by Wednesday.
