Many people were thrilled to see the snow vanish this weekend and warm air begin to filter back in to the area. We may even see temperatures get close to 70 tomorrow and Tuesday. Although winter is slowly coming to a close, we’re not out of the woods yet.
Here is the temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center through next weekend:
Here is the two week outlook:
Overall temperature looks to be on the chilly side. Keep in mind, the outlook shows the probability of temperatures not meeting the average daily temp. With average temperatures being in the low to mid 50s, highs in the upper 40s to near 50 will still be considered below average.
With that being said, I believe this week looks rather warm and even above average overall. A cold front will drop the temperatures to the mid 40s for Thursday, but they will rebound nicely into the upper 50s by Friday. So why is this two week outlook showing such a high probability for below average temperatures? The GFS is showing a trough bringing cold air trying to dive into the region after next weekend. There is a possibility that we see high temperatures back in the 40s for part of next week.
Next Wednesday morning:
In the short term:
The remainder of your Sunday looks to be nice and sunny. Monday and Tuesday will be the picks of the week with high temperatures near 70 on Monday and possibly reaching 71 on Tuesday. Rain will move into the area Tuesday night and bring with it slightly cooler temperatures for Wednesday.
We will see a quick shot of cold air swing through Wednesday night. Thursday morning lows will be in the low to mid 20s.
