WEATHER BLOG: Calm Thursday
While the next couple of days won’t be as mild as the past few, the above average temperatures should continue at least for a little while longer.
An upper trough over the Great Lakes will continue to provide for some warm air aloft, which should translate to the surface.
This same trough, however, will also pull some vorticity over the region, especially during the morning hours, which should result in spotty flurries or sprinkles Thursday.
This vorticity will pull northeast of the I-95 corridor Thursday night and a drying should take place across the area.
The next storm approaching the area is a very slow-moving and weak clipper system crossing the Great Lakes.
On Friday, the storm’s most noticeable impact will be in the form of warmth. Thanks to strong southerly flow, Friday looks like the warmest day of the forecast. The clipper’s cold front passes overhead on Friday night, bringing a spotty rain or snow shower to the area.
Behind this on Saturday will be a cool down, but temperatures will only drop to around normal. A shortwave that will dive across the western Great Lakes on Saturday will move overhead on Saturday night and Sunday morning, bringing the chance for a snow shower or two across the region again.
