Wednesday, December 5 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Wednesday! There is frost throughout our area this morning as temperatures have dropped below freezing. Another chilly day is on tap for our Wednesday as high pressure slides through the area. Highs are only expected to warm into the upper-40s to low-50s this afternoon despite abundant sunshine. A few more clouds build in overnight as the high pressure system slides to our east, bringing back southerly flow to our area. This will help us warm into the upper-50s under partly cloudy skies after a freezing start for our Thursday.

Thicker clouds will start to build in on Friday out ahead of the next storm system that will move through. Until then, a stray shower remains possible after sunset for our Friday. Most of us; however, should remain dry on Friday as highs climb to near 60. A low pressure system will move along the Gulf Coast on our Saturday bringing heavy rain along with it. There is a minor flash flood threat with this system as 1-3 inches of rain is expected area-wide when all said and done. Locally higher amounts will still be possible if any thunderstorms develop. Any thunderstorm that does form will not be severe, the ingredients simply aren’t there due to the low pressure hugging the coast.

A few leftover showers will be possible on Sunday, otherwise it’ll just be overcast with temperatures staying steady in the mid-to-upper-40s throughout the day. We’ll finally see peeks of sun again for our Monday, but it’ll still be a cold one as high pressure slides back into our area. Clear skies into Tuesday will aid in temperatures dropping further in an already freezing air mass. Expect widespread 20s across the area by the time you head out the door Tuesday morning. Temperatures will rebound that day into the low-50s thanks to sunny skies.
