It’s A Warm Pattern Taking Shape

Good Sunday to one and all. We are ending the weekend with a serious surge of awesome temps rolling into the region. This spike in the numbers will take control of our weather in the coming week. So, if you’re a fan of May, you get it a little early this year. 🙂

I’m also going to briefly touch on the summer ahead and the possible implications of a developing El Nino.

Highs today hit the 70s across the entire state under gorgeous sunny skies. Readings by Monday can make a run at 80 in most areas.

A cold front moves in on Tuesday with a broken line of showers and storms. This may last into Wednesday morning, with a little dip in temps.

That won’t last very long, check out the warm air surging back in for Thursday and Friday…

This stormy spring setup is likely to kick back into high gear late next weekend into the following week, as the warm air continues.

Speaking of warm, it’s looking more and more like the equatorial waters of the Pacific will continue to warm toward El Nino Status. The seasonal CFS shows this heading toward a weak-moderate El Nino…

The European Seasonal Model is similar…

Here’s the CFS showing those warmer than normal waters developing…

That’s a very warm look for the entire Pacific Ocean.

What does a developing El Nino mean for us? Many El Nino summers skew a little cooler than normal around here, especially as summer wears on. Of course, there isn’t a whole lot about the weather that is ‘normal’ any longer, so I’m going to be looking at other factors over the next few weeks before getting too specific.

My initial thought for the summer is a tropical feeling one.

Have a great day and take care.
