Small Rain Chances Next Week – Saturday Evening Forecast Update 8:40 PM


We enjoyed the effects of high pressure today – tons of sunshine and comfortable temperatures in the low 80s with low humidity. I hope everyone could enjoy this weather today! We do have some changes on the way, however. We’ll see that high pressure slide off to our east, and a southeasterly flow will result for tomorrow. This will help increase our moisture content gradually, but mid-level moisture will also be on the increase as well. What this means is, we’ll have sunshine to start your Sunday, but mid-level clouds will quickly increase throughout the afternoon.

We could see a few showers tomorrow night, but most model guidance suggests the rain showers accompanying an approaching front will dissipate. Furthermore, this front will kind of become diffuse as upper-level energy lifts off to the northeast. We’ll see moisture remain in place throughout the upcoming work week, but with a flat upper flow. What this translates to weather wise is this: a partly cloudy sky with a few spot showers possible for Monday and Tuesday.

By the middle of the week, mid-level high pressure will settle into the western Atlantic. The GFS and Euro suggest a weak piece of energy or two will ride northeast on the western periphery of this ridge. This may spell a little higher rain chances for Wednesday and Thursday but still, a widespread rain even is not likely.

Models continue to suggest a much stronger system by the weekend. It is still way too early to be specific on this, but I would look for increasing rain chances at some point Friday afternoon through Sunday morning. We’ll hopefully have better timing for you as the week goes along.

Enjoy your Saturday night, and Roll Tide!!!!
