Today through Friday marks a true period of spring with the warmest temps we have seen all year. It is no secret that is is caused by a rising jet stream over our area which brings in warm air form the south as seen below..
As usual, it is the opposite out west with very stormy conditions. Check out that negative or blue area over Mexico. That is a very impressive departure from normal which will actually cause snow to fall in the mountains down there! Pretty cool stuff. Think of that, as we bask in 70 degree temps there is snow in Mexico.
Anyway, here are some latest model projections for high temps tomorrow..
As you can see, a wide range of support for temps in the low 70s for most areas!
This warm air mass continues until the weekend when cooler conditions move back in. Expect temps in the high 50's to low 60's this weekend.
In terms of the long range pattern, we could see a return to colder than normal conditions as we get closer to March 20th but by then seeing the shot at any type of winter event is rare. We will see how things unfold. As I declared early last week, welcome to spring!
