Good Sunday everyone. We are ready to put the wraps on a gorgeous weekend straight out of September. Our calendar says it’s August, but mother nature has things on fast forward right now. The overall pattern looks to continue with another big blast of cool likely over the next week.
Our day starts in the 50s for many areas and will end in the upper 70s and low 80s in the east and in the middle 80s across the west. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny.
A stout little system will roll across the Ohio Valley late Monday into Tuesday and this is likely to produce some showers and thunderstorms. This may have just enough strength to produce a few strong storms late Monday and we will keep an eye on that.
Here’s how the high resolution NAM simulated radar looks…
Temps Monday will hit the 80s and drop back a few degrees by Tuesday. Some areas may not hit 80 Tuesday, but that is all dependent on the leftover showers and clouds.
Temps will warm back toward normal levels for the middle of the week. That isn’t going to last very long as another shot of cool air sweeps into the central and eastern part of the country by next Friday. The European Model shows a similar evolution to what we just had…
The air behind that front looks even cooler than the one we just had. Canada continues to look pretty darn cold for this time of year and these fronts are making some serious headway into the United States. It will be interesting to see if this continues into the upcoming fall.
Have a great rest of your weekend and take care.
