Good morning everyone. It will finally start to feel more like summer as we approach the first day of summer early this week. A big ridge of high pressure is in control and allowing warmer air to funnel into our area from the south over next two days. Expect temperatures today and tomorrow to be in the high 80's and maybe low 90's in a few spots.
Tomorrow we will see a frontal passage with some isolated unsettled weather ahead of this front tonight. Do not be surprised if you hear a rumble of thunder or a shower passing by as we head into Tuesday morning..
On Wednesday high pressure is back in control with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 80's.
The only bump in the road this week comes Thursday as a low pressure system dives down from Canada..
This should cause widespread showers and a few storms with mostly cloudy skies. This is all cleared out by Friday morning and paves the way for a beautiful weekend.
A ridge of high pressure (seen below) returns for this weekend resulting in sunny skies with temperatures rising from he low to mid 80's Friday to the high 80's Sunday..
It appears this recent pattern of moderate temps will continue over the next two weeks. This means we will have seasonable conditions overall with a few spikes in temps along the way. The persistent riding of high pressure out west looks to support this pattern. I see no heatwaves in sight through the 4th of July weekend. The question still remains will the east ever break into a sustained pattern of warmer than normal conditions. At this time the trend is not our friend. The MO of this summer so far is up and down weather which keeps things on the cooler side. We will have to see if this continues as we get into the heart of July.
Thanks for reading.
