Forecast DiscussionHigh pressure will remain over our area tonight. Weak positive vorticity advection Friday night will force weak vertical motion that may lead to some precipitation. Winds from west to north Friday night, bringing significant cold air advection into the region on Saturday. Positive vorticity advection will work its way into the region Sunday night into Monday, producing vertical motion and our best chance for precipitation.
The main issue affecting our forecast confidence is the track of the cyclone that comes into our area Sunday night. If it were to track further to the north, our chance for precipitation diminishes significantly.
