Fall 2017: A Change In The Weather Pattern

The cold front forecast to move into the area this weekend did indeed, but as a very slowly moving semi-stalled front, what’s being called a surface trough. As this feature made its way into the gulf it completely sheared apart the semi-tropical low that was spinning away in the gulf yesterday. We’re going to see a big change in the weather pattern from the tightening pressure gradient. Wind coming from the middle and east side of the state at similar latitudes will keep high temperatures. Starting tomorrow morning, the big change will come as moderate to strong east wind and lower humidity. The gradient loosens by Friday morning, and we’ll be back in a pattern of slack winds with afternoon sea breezes by next weekend.
