Showers Tonight, Warming Later in The Work Week

As the stratus deck above us continues to dissipate and move to our northeast we should see temperatures start to rise, although today’s high temperature forecast seems it will be a little too high. Tonight the low will creep down to the mid-40s. A low-pressure system is settling into the Great Lakes Region and with that a cold front will swing through early Wednesday but little moisture has been advected into the area, so expect just scattered showers. As the low approaches pressure-gradients will tighten so wind speeds will increase. Expect winds to sustain around 10-15mph and gust to reach up to 35mph. Temperatures will reach the mid- to upper-50’s wednesday and settle back down to the mid-30’s wednesday night.

As the flow switches from the ridge/trough pattern into a more zonal flow, temperatures will begin to rise Thursday and Friday. Thursday we should see sunny skies with a high around 62 and a low that night around 40, under mostly clear skies. Friday is panning out to be a beautiful day as well with mostly sunny skies and a high in the lower 70’s.

However, these warm temperatures don’t look to last too long as the 6-10 probability outlook from the Climate Prediction center for temperatures is hinting at the same ridge trough pattern that we’ve seem to be stuck in. This is not a guarantee for cold weather next week but instead the probability that we will see temperatures that are below normal. 610temp.newWeekly Outlook:
