Cold fronts dominate the week of weather

Good Monday, everyone. We have cold front after cold front lined up to sweep into the region from the northwest over the next week. These fronts will usher in colder and colder air, with the potential for frost showing up by the weekend.

Let’s start with the first front that arrives Monday night. Highs ahead of this front will spike into the 70s on a gusty southwesterly wind. As the front moves in, a broken band of showers and isolated storms develops Monday evening. Areas that do manage to get some rain shouldn’t see very much at all.

Temps by Tuesday come way down, with afternoon highs only in the low and middle 60s. Winds remain gusty from the northwest, but skies become partly sunny.

A reinforcing shot of cold arrives Wednesday behind a dry cold front. Lows by Thursday morning might drop into the mid and upper 30s with patchy frost.

That sets the stage for a stronger push of cold air surging in for the weekend:

This puts just about the entire eastern half of the country in a much-below-normal air mass:

Folks, that’s an impressive shot of cold this early in the season. A shot like that could knock temps below the freezing mark this weekend. As a matter of fact, a few models are showing lows in the 20s:

That would certainly put an end to the growing season!

Enjoy your Monday and take care.
