I am continuing my trek west. I got hit by a rainy squall line in Atlanta yesterday, but all remained below severe limits.
This morning, the weather has been sunny, with mild temperatures and calm winds.
The NWS in Peachtree City, GA, forecasts (for Douglasville, GA) a sunny day, with a high temperature of 66 F. The winds will be from the west at 5 mph.
The NWS in Jackson, MS, forecasts (for Jackson, MS) a sunny day, with a high temperature of 73 F. The winds will be from the west southwest at 5-10 mph.
The NWS in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, forecasts (for Dallas, TX) a clear night, with a low temperature of 38 F. The winds will be from the north-northwest at 5-10 mph.
The SPC Mesoscale Analysis Surface Map shows cool temperatures and high humidity, with a mix of sunny and cloudy skies (according to the sensors) and still winds.
The SPC Mesoscale Analysis Pressure Map shows that we will be under high pressure and no strong pressure gradients. The RAP shows the pressure will drop with diurnal heating over the next six hours.
Visible satellite image shows a few, lingering clouds over Alabama.
The Nested NAM simulated reflectivity shows I will pass through a squall line sometime today.
The Nested NAM predicts temperatures will rise into the lower 60s F somewhere in LA/MS this afternoon, and then decrease to the lower 40s F overnight in Dallas.
The Nested NAM shows that the dewpoints will drop from the lower 50s F into the 30s F as I move west and as the dryline pushes southeast towards the Gulf of Mexico.
The Nested NAM shows strong wind gusts are unlikely along my route today. This image has been excluded from today’s post.
The Nested NAM predicts sunny skies along my route. This image has been excluded from today’s post.
I have a long ways to go today to make up some lost time. I’m disappointed that I didn’t get farther last night. At least the weather will be okay.
Thank you for reading my post.
