Monday Morning Weather Note: Fall Conditions This Week, Cold Shots on the Horizon

Good morning! Quick post today as it will be a relatively quiet week weather wise. Expect temps in the high 60's and lower 70s with limited chances at any rainfall. A cold front looks like it wants to cross through on Friday which would give us the chance at showers later in the day.

 I am expecting colder conditions in the wake of this front. That means high temps in the low to mid 60's possible this weekend along with nighttime lows in the 40's for many places. You are all starting to notice we are going into a fall pattern now. The jet stream is beginning to strengthen (function of larger temperature gradients due to less sunlight in northern hemisphere) so the weather should start picking up in intensity over the next few weeks. 

In fact we might see our first real shot of cold air mid next week as there are hints the jet stream pattern will dip over our area..

I am going to most likely cover this in more detail later this week but in a nutshell we have high pressure riding along the west coast and over AK with the downstream response of a trough of cold air over the east coast. Again this is for next week. We will also have to keep our eye on any storm development from a pattern like this.

More this week. Thanks for reading.
