Tuesday: Taking a Look at The Week Ahead

Good morning. The holiday weekend ended up being ok. We saw rain yesterday but Saturday and Sunday turned out to be decent days. 

As we head into the rest of this week things will continue to be unsettled with more up and down weather.  Today will feature clouds with the chance of showers...


By tomorrow, the sun comes back out with temperature sitting in the mid 70's. This nice weather lasts into Thursday which will be a little cooler with temperatures in the low 70's due to a passing front Wednesday night.

Then the chop comes back as we head into the weekend. Friday will feature sun, but there is a chance at some showers and storm as we head into the afternoon as a front approaches...

For the weekend, a series of low pressure system will try to move through the region. This means the chances of unsettled weather are high. 

By the time we get to Saturday afternoon, the first low pressure wave moves through the north...


There may then be a break in the action until we get to later in the day on Sunday as a potential larger system is on its heals...

I still think we see sun on both days we just should have some showers to deal with as these impulses move through the region. 

So when does summer really arrive? Well, it still appears we have some time to go. The unsettled and cooler than normal pattern should continue into June. You can see the long range model projections below showing the cooler pocket over the east in the long range...

Eventually this pattern will break, but it has been remarkable how persistent it has been all spring. The heat will eventually come but until then expect more moderate temperatures with multiple chances at unsettled weather over the next 2 weeks.

  1. Thank you for sharing such a detailed update on weather. I think that some showers and some sun would do good. No? Good luck for the week ahead.
