Cloudy Skies & Slight Rain Chances

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday, December 5

1:00pm

Overview
There is a LP (Low Pressure System) that is over the SE U.S. with an associated front that is stretched through Mississippi and parts of Louisiana. A ridge of High Pressure is building in the wake of a cold front in the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Elsewhere, there is a secondary LP  North of the Central Plains that is developing.

Discussion
A weak cold front will continue traveling South & East through the gulf coast states, today. Between that front merging with a weak low pressure system and an upper-level piece of energy aloft, we will continue to see a lot of cloud cover, overhead and low rain chances for the next 48 hours or so. Nevertheless, we will start to see improving conditions as early as this evening as this front continues to slowly move toward the SE and in to the GoM (Gulf of Mexico). During the next couple of days, we will see a dome of high pressure move Westward, through Georgia and into our area. It will wash out this system (over Louisiana) by Thursday evening.

For the rest of the day,
Despite the cloud cover, afternoon temperatures will run about 5 degrees above normal for early December. Wrap around cloud cover and a slight chance for showers will remain in the forecast with a light to moderate wind out of the North.
Overnight, the upper-level energy that is keeping the clouds in place will begin to slowly break down and some fog will form during the early morning hours.

For the rest of the 7day planner
As this front slowly moves out of the area, skies will begin to gradually decrease during the next couple of days. However, rain chances will not completely get out of the planner until AFTER our next significant front moves through during the beginning of the work week.
This stronger cold front will travel into the area late on Sunday. With this system, numerous showers and thunderstorms will be expected.

TODAY...Cloudy skies and a bit cooler with off/on rain or drizzle. Rain will be Hit & Miss and just less than half of the area will see some light shower activity. Highs 65-71. N/NE wind 2-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT...Mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles possible. Lows 50-57. A light and variable wind.
