The stubborn upper-level low responsible for so much rain this week will remain a thorn in our side for one more day, but fortunately more sunshine will be had as this feature finally heads offshore.
With this disturbance nearby we cannot rule out a stray shower or thunderstorm this afternoon across northern and northeastern areas, but any activity that does materialize should be brief in duration. Temperatures will be several degrees above normal today thanks to the sunshine expected — and tomorrow will be more of the same with partial sunshine and temperatures even warmer. A warm front approaches from the west tomorrow night and brings with it a few showers and thunderstorms back to the area.
Monday will be warm as a cold front stalls out to the northwest and allows more warmth to surge northward ahead of this boundary. Deep-layered moisture will also surge northward and with that expect showers and thunderstorms to develop by the afternoon. Tuesday and Wednesday look to feature warmth as the cold front stalls to the west and allows a warmer, more humid air mass to move in. As you may have guessed by now, showers and thunderstorms will be scattered about once again with perhaps a few breaks of sunshine… but that will be at a premium.
Model guidance isn’t very encouraging in the longer range with regards to dryness, much less ample sunshine. The best shot for a decent day looks to be Wednesday at this point as we may find ourselves between upper-level impulses — if this occurs we may get a temporary reprieve from the onslaught of rain. I wouldn’t bet on it though…
Have a good one!
