As I alluded
to in yesterday’s article, a cooler and considerably less humid airmass will replace
the stormy and humid one this weekend. Deep, southwesterly flow currently extends
from Texas to the Mid-Atlantic. With low-level southerly and southeasterly flow
south of a stationary front draped from southeast Texas to Virginia, the atmosphere
has remained moisture-laden. Any embedded disturbance within the deep-layer
southwesterly flow has continued to favor the development of storms capable of
producing heavy rainfall rates for quite a few.
shortwave trough currently moving into the Northern Plains will trek eastward
and usher in a pattern change. By early next week, the stationary front will
push out, and a longwave trough will temporarily be placed over the eastern
U.S. This type of pattern favors cooler and less humid conditions. Temperatures
will still reach the 70s and 80s during the day across the South, but nighttime
temperatures will actually be a bit chilly. The Northeastern U.S. will
eventually have the coolest conditions once the upper-level low passes across
the region around mid-week.
while you can. Expect a warming trend from west to east late week into early
