Looks like we will crack the 60 degree mark today and make a run toward 70 tomorrow and Monday. We have not been above to 60 degrees or higher since 61 on October 28th. High pressure will be sliding to the east and center will be just east of Maine tomorrow morning, while the storm system coming out of the Rockies today moves to northern Minnesota tomorrow evening, The resultant change in the wind flow to more southerly for us and building upper level heights will send temperatures upward.
The southerly flow between the high sliding to the east and the storm coming out of the Rockies is forcing warmer air northward into the Ohio Valley and western Great Lakes today along a developing warm front. Some showers and even some thunder have developed as expected ahead of the warmer air and are spilling eastward across western Maryland, western and central PA and upstate New York. Although there will be a brief spotty shower off to our north and west from this warm advection this morning, we should stay dry. However, after our deep blue sky of yesterday, we will have much more in the way of clouds today, though there will still be intervals of sunshine.
As the warmer air continues to infiltrate the area tomorrow and Monday, we are looking at readings climbing well into the 60s.
