Tracking Another Fall Cold Front

Good Monday, everyone. July is wrapping up on a cooler than normal note across the region, and it appears August is going to bring more of the same. Another potent fall cold front is set to move in here later this week, with a big blast of cool air coming in behind it.

Temps today are general 80-85 for many areas, but that’s cooler than we should be. Low and middle 80s will be with us on Tuesday and I can’t rule out some scattered showers and storms. That action may increase a bit as we head into Wednesday…

That action then increases into Thursday as our front nears from the northwest…

The front slams in here Friday into Friday night with gusty winds, and showers and storms…

Several areas may pick up 1″+ rains through early Saturday. That’s when the early October air settles into our region. Highs this weekend are generally in the 70s, though any lingering clouds and showers could keep the numbers a bit lower. Lows will be in the 50s, with some upper 40s possible by Sunday morning.

The below normal numbers will last into early next week, but will begin to moderate some. As this happens, we will need to watch for a wet period trying to develop. That’s typical of departing deep troughs.

Speaking of wet patterns, the long range European Ensembles through September 11 show above normal precipitation for a lot of the country…

Temps during this same time are forecast to average below normal…

The CFS model during the same time is basically identical…

Summer is so overrated. 🙂

Make it a great day and take care.
