Saturday morning’s weather map features an area of low pressure centered over the mouth of the Hudson Bay. A warm front snakes to the southeast of the low – into New England – while a cold front trails from the low to the south, into the Ohio Valley.
Despite upper level ridging the last couple of days, it is the aforementioned and *stubborn* warm front that prevented our weather from getting pleasant and kept us a cloudy/dreary weather regime. The passage of this front to the north and east last night will “open the gates,” so to speak, to a warmer southwesternly flow of air into the region. Temperatures support a warm day, with a wide area of 75-85 degree temperatures of the surface along and to the west/east of the I-95 corridor. The warmer temperatures are certainly a positive, however they are being aided by an approaching cool front.
