Quiet week expected with a chance of thunderstorms later today a shortwave trof passes to the north. A cold front will move through the area but do little to reduce temperatures. A warming trend begins on Wednesday. Another cold front is expected Friday, this one seems to have a little more bite to it. Temperatures recover over the weekend.
00z EC/GFS both are targeting a rather substantial cold front between late Sunday and early Tuesday. This was has at least Canadian origins, maybe even some Arctic air. This seems to occur as a southern stream system digs just to the west of the region. The EC is faster with the system than the GFS, which is a change from the runs yesterday. It certainly appears that some interesting weather is on-tap for next week, at the very least much colder. We’ll see if the atmosphere does what the models think it should.
