Dry Week Ahead No Major Storms In Sight Next Chance Rain Snow Shower Saturday
The new work week gets underway with some high level moisture that has shot out to the northeast from a weak storm moving across the Gulf States. That storm system is producing some snow in the Central Gulf States but the low is weakening as it moves east and will basically fall apart as it heads t the Southeast Coast. In the meantime today is the 8th consecutive day of no precipitation. That streak has a ways to go before we see any measurable rain or snow.
Other than the high clouds, precipitation is virtually non existent on the regional radar views. So we will see high clouds and some sunshine today. Highs will be mostly in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Radars are likely to be silent for quite awhile.
There really isn’t much going on. The strong blocky signature in the North Atlantic is keeping weather systems suppressed and to our south. Today’s weak Gulf low moves off the Carolinas Tuesday and then out to sea. We just stay dry with clouds and some sun. Highs will be in the range of 40 to 45.
Wednesday and Thursday will be warmer with sun and clouds. Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s. The next cold front begins its approach on Friday putting us in more clouds and temperatures will be in the low to mid 40s. That front comes through with maybe a rain shower early Saturday and then it turns windy and colder for the rest of the weekend. More importantly is the fact that there are no major storms on the horizon. While the pattern longer range shows cold air masses and cold fronts coming through every three or 4 days, it doesn’t appear to be favorable for storms to develop and impact the Middle Atlantic and Northeast.
MANY THANKS TO TROPICAL TIDBITS FOR THE USE OF MAPS
