Two nice days, then a storm

Good Tuesday everyone. Things are looking pretty darn nice for the next couple of days, and I suggest you get out and enjoy it. Another storm system is going to slowly roll across the region by the end of the week, and this will bring another windy change to our weather.

After some morning frost on the pumpkins, temps today will rise into the low and middle 60s under partly sunny skies.  Winds are going to crank up Wednesday as temperatures rise well into the 70s. Clouds will increase by the end of the day as a strong cold front approaches from the west.

That front slams in here Wednesday night and Thursday morning with a line of showers and thunderstorms. The NAM Model shows a fairly widespread event:

Wind gusts with the frontal passage may approach levels we had this past weekend, and there’s a small chance for a strong storm or two.

The rest of the week will be dominated by slow-moving low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere:

The result on our weather will be a very windy period that features lower-than-normal temps and the threat of periodic showers. That doesn’t mean a washout, because these look to come at us in a few waves. Many dry hours will be noted between any shower action.

The long-range call for next week is for a windy and warm start with the potential for another big storm.

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
