BLOG: Very Mild Again
Sometimes the weather pattern presents unique challenges… and sometimes the challenges are not so unique, quite common, and still difficult to forecast for. That will be the case over the next several days as a weak cold front stalls out across northern New England tomorrow thanks to a blocking high offshore. This high and associated upper-level ridge will also inhibit the progression of a deep upper-level low over the Deep South.
So in the near term things appear to be dry with a lack of a significant forcing. Shower chances are slim until the upper-level low moves into the Appalachians, driving a surface low into northern Ohio and pushing its cold front into the area from the southwest. This all means a moist, warm flow off the Atlantic will preclude the front and push highs into the 60s through Tuesday.
Tuesday is the day in which it would appear that rain finally works into the area. That said, a stray shower isn’t out of the question for Monday night, but anything that happens will be brief and isolated in nature. So after a wet day on Tuesday, Wednesday should feature more sunshine as the flow becomes westerly in the wake of the cold front. With a portion of the upper-level energy hanging back it’s not out of the question for a lingering shower to move through northern parts of the area, however.
Thursday looks relatively nice with a good deal of sunshine, though it will be chilly with highs around 50. Another upper-level trough swings through Friday and Friday night with an increase in clouds the likely result. Next weekend looks nice at this point!
Have a great day!
