Tuesday, December 4 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Tuesday! Temperatures are in the 30s and low-40s across the area this morning, which is right around where we should be for this time of year. The same cannot be said for afternoon highs. The average for that is 62 and we only look to make it up to 53 for our Tuesday. The good news is we’ll see plenty of sunshine for the day and we look to keep clear skies overnight. Wednesday morning will be a cold one as most of us bottom out below freezing with some locations dropping into the upper-20s.

Sunshine will be in abundance for our Wednesday as highs struggle to make it to 50. More clouds will start to build in on Thursday out ahead of the next approaching system. Warmer air will be brought up from the Gulf of Mexico for the end of the week, allowing us to warm into the upper-50s on Thursday and then the low-60s by Friday.

Models have been trending later and later for shower activity arriving in our area on Friday; however, I will still keep in late-day showers for the official forecast, though this may be taken out in future forecasts depending on model trends. One things for certain is that rain will be likely on Saturday, some of which could be heavy at times. At this point we look to see rainfall totals between 1-3 inches, with higher amounts possible. This is all thanks to a low-pressure system moving across the Gulf Coast.

Rain chances should exit the area by Sunday morning as temperatures look to drop from about 50 degrees at midnight, into the low-to-mid-40s by Sunday afternoon. A few peeks of sunshine will be possible on Sunday though most of the day looks to be cloudy. Monday will be a bitterly cold day with partly cloudy skies and highs only in the mid-40s.
