Good morning bloggers,
Let’s begin with the title of this blog. How does the LRC help a forecast? Weather2020 knows what the weather pattern will look like hours, days, weeks, and months before it happens. Conditions will become favorable for the Atlantic basin to become active next week. Now, exactly what will happen is obviously just beginning to enter the conversations for those with tropical interests. Let’s see what happened while we were sleeping last night:
This map shows the European model, while the GFS model did come in with a weaker, yet similar solution. It is in the exact spot as predicted in January for this next week. Now what will really happen? Let’s keep our LRC feet up and keep watching closely.
Today’s Set Up:
A cold front is approaching the area. It can be argued as being an early fall cold front. It is now that time of the year. Ahead of this system will be a rich and deep tropical air mass with extreme humidity. A few 80 degree dew point readings may show up ahead of the front. This means that the rainfall rates would likely end up in the 3″ per hour rate and flooding is one of the risks tonight. This front is trying to target some of the driest regions in the current drought situation.
Most of the thunderstorms will be near the front. Where the front is located between 8 PM and midnight will likely be the location that has the heaviest rainfall.
By morning this system will be pushing south with cooler air moving in for Wednesday, then the chance of thunderstorms returns later in the week as the moisture tries to flow back north.
