Weather Pattern Change Brings Cool Air Sunday Monday
The run of severe weather continues this evening. In fact this is the first time that I can remember seeing tornado watches being posted for our area on back to back days. Who knows we could see another round of potential severe weather on Thursday as a cold front comes through. This will be the last in this series of 4 systems all being generated out of a storm in the Plains.
This has been one long wave train all being generated out of trough in the Plains. The western trough has been dominant in the last several weeks. However all patterns eventually come to an end and change and this one is finally changing. The trough goes away in the west and shifts to the east this weekend and next week. After the system on Thursday moves through Dry air from Canada starts to come in on Friday bringing sunshine and dry weather and that should carry into Saturday as well. Temperatures will still be rather warm with highs in the 80s both days.
The trough in the east is a deep one. In fact it will extend south into Florida which will break the heat wave that has been holding parts of the Southeast US hostage. This deep trough means another cold front comes through Saturday night with a few showers during the overnight. But this front is coming down from Canada and not being generated by a stalled frontal boundary. So it will come and go leaving us with better weather on Sunday we hope. There were hints of a wave developing on the front as it temporarily gets hung up but we will lean optimistic for now with clouds & some sun. We can’t rule out some showers if the front does slow down. It will move out later in the day with cool dry air here on Monday. We should see sunshine Monday with most highs just in the low to mid 70s. Warmer air comes later in the week but it least we can put some space between weather fronts and enjoy a few nice back to back days.
