Rain is near

The temp just dropped down to 30 here at the station at 5:30am. Temps were relatively chilly last night for a seasonable weather experience. Happy New Year! It's an honor to be able to sit in the weather seat this morning, and I'm very thankful to be with you guys. Our forecast today will foreshadow our 7day forecast. My main point is found in looking at the wind changing from the South, which will usher in more moisture from the Gulf. This moisture will certianly help in aiding temps in the 70's by Saturday and Sunday, but we will also see a good shot at rain on Saturday and the start of next week. Saturday we will see a LLJ, low level jet, bring in rain and the chance of thunderstorms as severe indices will be a mild consideration. Although I only expect the possibility of moderate to heavy rain Saturday night into Sunday morning. A cold front will push through Monday morning to deliver another shot at rain, but we will also see temps dropping back down into the 50's. Several models are also agreeing that we will have several cool days ahead in the next 5-10 days. Have a wonderful first day of 2009! Happy New Year!
