June Begins Cool Warm Up Ahead Severe Weather Risks
We kicked off the month with a cool brisk morning and temperatures that bottomed out in the 40s. Some patchy clouds are around but there is also a good amount of sunshine in most places today. We don’t see any real issues this afternoon as sunshine continues. Temperatures should reach the upper 60s and lower 70s for highs which is quite a nice way to start off the new month. However we do have a rather busy pattern head as we have a warm front cold front combination to deal with and another front late this week.
Clouds will increase tonight and that will keep temperatures up with lows mostly in the 50s. Models have somewhat backed off from showers late tonight into Tuesday morning. I’m going to leave the risk for a passing shower or two Tuesday morning and then we spend the rest of the day under mostly cloudy skies though we could see some breaks of sun in the mix. Highs will reach the upper 60s into the lower 70s.
Now we move into Wednesday and the issue here is where does the warm front set up. We are still in a situation where the warm front sets up and how far north does it get. This could determine the extent of any severe weather risks later Wednesday when a cold front approaches. The Storm Prediction Center has put us in a zone of risk mainly west of the coastal areas.
If the warm front struggles we could see this severe weather shift further south and we will watch to see how models handle this going into Wednesday. Areas in risk will see highs reach into the 80s Slight risk for now touches Western New Jersey and covers much of Pennsylvania.
The air behind the front is not cool at all and we will likely see another warm day on Thursday with some sunshine. Highs will be in the 80s. Another front will approach and there could be a scattered shower or thunderstorm Thursday. Friday brings another warm day with highs in the 80s and some pop up showers and thunderstorms. A cold front will stall out for a time Friday night and Saturday and this could complicate the start of the weekend before a push of cooler air forces everything to the east and then it is on to a better cooler Sunday.
