A More Active Pattern On The Way

Good Saturday, everyone. We have a cool, but very nice weather day taking shape across much of the region, but the pattern is looking active thereafter. That’s the bad news. The good news is that our temps will be much, much warmer into next week.

Temps out there today are into the middle and upper 40s with a mix of sun and clouds. Overall, this is a pretty good looking day!

Clouds will increase Sunday as temps spike toward the low 60s for many. Showers will move in as the day wears on, with the greatest concentration across the southern half of the state. There’s some model disagreement on just how far north the showers can get…



That will zip through here very quickly Sunday night, leaving us with a fairly nice Monday as temps reach the low 60s.

There could be a front tease the area on Tuesday, but you can see how this mainly stays to our north and northeast…

Temps for the middle and end of next week should be in the 60s and low 70s for highs. We will watch a couple of systems rolling through here with showers and, perhaps, a few strong storms…

As we look much farther down the weather road, we focus on the upcoming summer. Many of the new seasonal models are now singing a similar tune in terms of the overall summer temps. That tune is for a near normal June through August for our region and much of the country…



I’m just now really diving into the potential summer analogs, but that boiling Gulf of Mexico water will likely have something to say about our summer temps. I don’t think this is a truly hot summer, but I think it can be a warm and humid one. I see no real reason to believe it won’t be wetter than normal.

Enjoy your day and take care.
