Rain Moving Out…A Little Cooler, Then Warmer Next Week. Thursday Evening Forecast Discussion – 6:15 PM


A good Thursday evening to you! The final batch of shower and thunderstorms are working through parts of the area this evening, as a cold front moves in from the northwest. The storms are below severe limits and should stay that way through the rest of the evening. If you get any additional rain at your house, it won’t last long, and all rain will be out of the area by 10pm.

Temperatures will drop some behind the front, with lows in the lower to middle 40s tonight. Some spots could reach the upper 30s north of Fayette and Jasper, but we will all stay well above freezing. Skies will gradually go clear late tonight. Friday will feature a nice day, with afternoon highs near 60 degrees. The trough will slowly deepen over the weekend, which will continue to drop a bit. Look for highs in the upper 50s on Saturday and Sunday. Lows will fall into the upper 20s Sunday and Monday morning. A surface high will move across the southeast over the weekend, which will keep skies sunny.

We will continue this very progressive pattern, so the eastern US trough will continue to move east and should be out of our area first thing next week. As heights increase, temperatures will also increase. Look for highs to reach the lower 60s on Monday and middle to upper 60s on Tuesday. A south wind will also aid in the warming process. As moisture increases, temperatures at night will also increase. Look for temperatures back in the 40s at night by Tuesday and Wednesday night.

Skies will become mostly cloudy on Wednesday and Thursday as a weak cold front moves into the area. Some showers will also move into the area at some point on Wednesday and last through Thursday. So far, there are no signs of any very cold weather ahead. We’ll keep an eye on the forecast trends through the weekend and into next week.
