Tracking A More Active Pattern

Good Monday, everyone. Steamy temps continue to hang tough across the region for a few more days. Blah, blah, blah. Hang in there, cooler weather is on the way later this week, as our overall weather pattern starts to become more active.

So, we keep summer through the first half of the week, then a fall cold front brings some of the good stuff into town. The first front arrives late Wednesday, but may only be able to spit out isolated showers and storms.

A second system then digs in later Friday into early Saturday, bringing a chill to the air…

I can’t rule out a shower or two with that second system. That can give us a day in the 60s, with the potential for a few spots to sneak into the upper 30s by Sunday morning… If skies are clear.

A more potent system looks to follow that up by Monday and Tuesday. This one drops in from the northwest and tries to hook up with some kind of disturbance in the Gulf or off the southeastern coast. Here’s the European Model…

The GFS is just a little different, but has the overall theme…

The GFS continues to show a rather high amplitude pattern through the next few weeks…

It’s also the time of year to check on the snow maps across North America. The GFS Ensembles shows much of Canada and the Rockies getting flakes, but also has some falling in the northeastern part of the country…

It’s now time for your daily update on Hurricane Maria. This massive storm continues to spin just off the southeastern coast…

Hurricane Infrared GOES East

The track on this is likely to get closer enough to North Carolina to bring a decent impact…

Make it a magnificent Monday and take care.
