Rain then moves into the area on Thursday with a frontal system...
Rain is over by Thursday evening and there may be a few flakes on the backside of this front.
Some colder air then moves in for Friday into the weekend. This air will be slightly below normal with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s.
In terms of storm outlooks, there is the chance of storm development early next week...
Below is the potential setup for this...
Looking above, we have a few factors to track.
- Big ridge of high pressure developing over the Gulf of Alaska
- this drives cold air into the country from Canada
- Energy in the Gulf of Mexico with a negative tilted trough
- this enhances the chance for low pressure to develop
- I have not seen to many negative troughs this year yet
- A little big of blocking in the northwest Atlantic
- this if placed properly would aid in the storm not escaping out to sea
There are a few impressive components here, I will not lie. I love seeing energy that far south in the Gulf of Mexico and some blocking out ahead of it. However, based on how this winter has gone I am not inclined to jump the gun on this. Lets just see how things track over the next few days.
More to come.
