1037am EST Sunday Jan 19 2020
No major changes to the forecast this morning. Only slight adjustments were made to reflect current temperature trends as the cold front steadily progresses through the region.
.NEAR TERM [Today]... A cold front will pass through the Tri-State region today, with clouds clearing in its wake. Showers and an isolated storm or two will be possible along the front as it progresses eastward, though severe weather is not expected. Temperatures won't follow a typical diurnal pattern today due to the frontal passage. Locations closer to the southeast Big Bend will warm through the morning and early afternoon ahead of the front and then fall through the late afternoon and evening. The western Big Bend and south-central Georgia will likely realize their high temperatures within a couple hours of sunrise with temperatures gradually falling thereafter. Further west, temperatures will fall through the morning and early afternoon in the wake of the front, but may climb a couple of degrees late today as a result of solar insolation.
.SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Tuesday Night]... The eastern CONUS trough will remain established through the period, and will amplify on Tuesday as a shortwave moves into the Southeast. The position of the surface ridge axis will result in persistent north/northeasterly flow. The next three nigheights will feature temps below freezing, with Monday and Tuesday night likely to have widespread upper 20s across the region. Since winds will fail to go calm, wind chills each night will fall into the lower 20s and some locations across SE AL and SW GA could experience apparent temperatures below 20 (wind advisory criteria). The afternoons won't provide much relief from the cold as highs will struggle to reach 50 each day, and most likely won't across AL and much of GA.
Long Term - Wednesday Through Sunday
A gradual warming trend will begin in the long range period as low-level flow begins to veer and heigheights rise. Late in the week and towards the weekend, another shortwave is forecast to move through the Plains and Mississippi Valley. This will likely result in increased rain chances at some point towards the end of the period. Timing is highly uncertain right now as models aren't in great agreement.
