Technical Forecast Discussion

Short Term (Monday 5/27 through Tuesday 5/28)

Zonal flow with slight ridging evident in the mid-levels is present early Monday. Moisture will be absent in the region for the majority of Monday resulting in relatively low cloud cover. CAA will slowly leave the area while temperatures remain in the low 80s. A mid-level disturbance will be present late Monday Tuesday as a developing low pressure system makes its way into the region. This will bring in a narrow band of moisture Monday night that will bring a slight chance of showers. Through Monday into Tuesday, a warm frontal boundary will form putting the region in the warm sector. Humidity ahead of the cold front will be colocated with the warms sector bringing humid WAA leading to temps potentially in the low 90s.

Long Term (Wednesday 5/29 through Saturday 6/1)

An upper-level trough will move into the region on Wednesday with a multiple mid-level low behind it. This will push copious amounts of moisture into the region allowing for updrafts from strong heating to interact with this moisture and create chances for thunderstorms. As the trough strengthens, a cold front will move through the area and create showers and storms ahead of it that will be in the area Thursday afternoon. A secondary cold front may produce precipitation on Friday, but high pressure may negate it. Cloud cover will be low on Saturday as high pressure sits off to the west. An upper level trough will dig into the region on Saturday that will bring chances for storms on Sunday.
