Monday Morning Weather Update

The fall temps have arrived and everyone felt it this morning with temps below 50 in some spots. This is due to a trough over our area, the same trough that brought snow to the western part of the country last week...

Typical setup for cooler than normal east, with a trough just off the pacific coast which pumps up the ridge on the west coast and a corresponding trough over our area. Notice as well the NAO is negative as shown by the red colors over Greenland.

This pattern will lock in for this week and have below normal temps over our area on the front 5 days. 

Temps will struggle to get into the mid-70's with this air mass, and lows at night will be very chilly.

As we get to the end of the week, things will moderate slightly but nothing to write home about..

I think September ends up very below avg for temps central part of country, above normal for the West and just slightly below normal temps for our area.

Enjoy the nice fall weather this week.
