Isolated showers and storms today

Good Sunday to one and all. We’re coming off a sensational Saturday that gave us sunny skies and temps in the 70s. Today’s weather won’t be as nice as we track a few showers and thunderstorms into the commonwealth.

The stuff out there today will likely come in the form of a broken line of precipitation. It’s not going to be a washout of a day, but keep an umbrella handy to be on the safe side. Temps will likely run a few degrees below the highs we had yesterday.

Current temperatures

Some isolated action may hang around into Monday as thermometers return to the 70s. That will set the stage for a big time warm up for Tuesday and Wednesday. That’s when thermometers have a shot at hitting 80 degrees for the first time this spring. Gusty winds will go along with the surge of warmth.

A slow moving storm will cross out of the plains and into the Ohio Valley by late in the week. The timing on this system is a bit in question with the European holding it off until Friday. The GFS shows it pushing in by Thursday:

GFS 2There may be enough instability ahead of that system to give us some strong or severe thunderstorms. Cooler air will filter in behind that boundary for a day or two, but should be nothing like the recent shots of cold.

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
