StormTracker Forecast…Another night with areas of fog, light showers, and mild temperatures before our weather pattern changes. Showers and isolated storms are likely on Sunday thanks to a cold front, which should pass through the area by Sunday evening. A few light showers will occur around the area Sunday morning, then showers and storms are likely during the afternoon and evening.
Areas north of I-12/I-10 are under a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 out of 5) for severe storms. An isolated storm embedded within a line of showers and storms could potentially produce damaging straight line winds or spawn a brief tornado. The window of opportunity for severe storms would be during the late afternoon and evening. Two rounds of rain will occur — one during the early afternoon and then one late in the afternoon/early evening. The second round would be when we could see strong to severe storms.
By Monday morning, temperatures will be in the low and mid-40s. Highs on Monday will only be in the lower 60s. Sunshine will continue through New Years Eve day, but temperatures will still be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. A sprinkle or two may be possible as we ring in 2020, but it won’t be anything heavy. It will be a chilly night, so be sure to dress warm!
Showers are possible on New Years Day, but most stay dry until Thursday and Friday. A deep surge of tropical moisture may lead to heavy rain for our area. We will be monitoring the situation very carefully.
