We have been talking about it for several days now and it still looks like the coolest air of the season arrives next weekend. Just how cool though is the big question??? In the past, cold air masses are typically underdone in the South so we'll see. Computer models continue to indicate a cool down but fluctuate on just how cool it's going to get and keep flip flopping. Climatologically, highs are in the upper 80s and lows are in the upper 60s but by next weekend we could be running some 10-15 degrees below normal, especially across our northern counties.
What we do know: Cooler air arrives next weekend.
What we don't know: The magnitude of the cooler air and just how far south it will travel.
What to expect: Lows either in the lower 60s or 50s and highs either in the lower 80s or 70s.
This far out it's hard to forecast temperatures accurately...
Here's a comparison between computer models:
SATURDAY MORNING: Notice how much cooler the GFS model is versus the EURO!
SATURDAY AFTERNOON: GFS is similar to the EURO.
SUNDAY MORNING: GFS is much cooler than the EURO.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON: Temperatures vary considerably between long range models.
We'll continue to track this cooler than normal air mass and will have a better idea as to what ot expect in the coming days.
