Roller Coaster Ride Next Several Weeks
Long Range Blocking Appears Short Range More Volatility
Fasten your seat belts because over the next few weeks we are in for a bit of a wild ride. The current pattern remains fast and volatile with cold shots coming in fast and going out fast. Warm ups in between are going to start going higher. The first such warm up arrives over the next 2 days. In the transition we are going to see clouds tonight. As temperatures rise and a little bit of a southeast wind could cause some spotty drizzle to develop overnight which might freeze inland. Temperatures will hover in the upper 20s and low 30s until about midnight and then begin creeping higher by daybreak. The clouds will move out and we will see sunshine develop on Wednesday. Temperatures should reach the 50s in most places.
Wednesday night we transition over to an even warmer air mass and there could be some rain Wednesday night into early Thursday before we go to some sunshine Thursday afternoon. Temperatures Thursday are on cue to reach the 60s and some warm spots could reach 70 if there is enough sun.
Then here comes a cold front with rain Thursday night into Friday morning. Colder air follows with temperatures eventually settling in the 40s Friday afternoon and then dropping to the 20s on Saturday morning. We have been saying that if one of these weather systems times out with the cold air there could be a snow issue and some models are showing this possibility for Saturday night into Sunday morning....READ MORE AT METEOROLOGISTJOECIOFFI.COM
