Big temps swings ahead

Good Saturday, everyone.  We are seeing temperatures starting to take off as much warmer air surges into the region. This could send highs toward 80 degrees in the coming days, but a drastic drop is coming for the second half of next week.

Highs Saturday will hit the mid- and upper 70s with the threat of a shower or two. Most areas should stay dry on a strong southwesterly flow:

Highs on Sunday will range from the upper 70s to around 80 with a small, small storm threat.

Highs for Monday and Tuesday will again be in the upper 70s and lower 80s ahead of a strong cold front. That front blows into town Wednesday, with an increase in showers and thunderstorms. It’s being pushed by a huge dip in the jet stream that can create quite a storm system and unleash much colder air.

The Canadian model shows this drop in the jet stream:

Watch the storm that develops:

That setup can deliver our best chance for rain since August, and might deliver our first widespread frost threat.

Have a great day and take care.
