Continue Cool; More Clouds

Our regularly scheduled progression of Spring has been put on hold as a cool northwest flow will keep our temperatures below normal for the next several days. After having plenty of sunshine this afternoon, more clouds are expected tonight. Saturday will feature a fair amount of clouds with a light passing shower or two possible during the afternoon. Sunday the clouds remain and for the most part we remain dry, although i am not completely ruling out a passing shower. Next week looks mostly dry with our next chance of showers arriving by the middle of the week.

Forecast Discussion

Cooler weather is here to stay for awhile as an active jet stream carves out a bit of a dip over the eastern half of the United States. There will be increasing clouds this evening and overnight. Saturday will be mostly cloudy as a weak disturbance tracks along the Gulf Coast and while the moisture transport from the Gulf of Mexico is cut-off, we are only expecting a few light passing showers around on Saturday. Mostly cloudy skies are expected for your Sunday with dry conditions for the most part, although we can't entirely rule out a passing shower.

Dry weather is expected as we start the new week out on Monday and we remain dry on Tuesday. Temperatures are once again cool on Monday, but we take a step closer to normal on Tuesday. Another cold front will approach on Tuesday night passing through on Wednesday. Once again, the flow of moisture from the Gulf just isn’t going to be there, and so showers will be minimal with the frontal passage. Behind the front, the air mass looks a little bit cooler than the present one, so there will be a heightened early-AM frost risk late in the workweek.
