A nice start to a much warmer week

Good Monday, everyone. Our work week is off and running with much warmer temperatures. This warmer air will carry us through much of the week, but showers and thunderstorms are going to try to crash our party.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Highs will be in the mid 70s for many areas as skies stay mostly sunny.

Tuesday is similar, but with temps pushing 80 degrees. There’s a slight risk for a shower or storm to go up later in the day. This action is ahead of a weak front dropping in here from the northwest:

This boundary looks to pull up some juice from a southern system and that means showers and storms will be noted from Wednesday through Friday:

It’s interesting to note the GFS Ensembles and European Ensembles are both showing drier than normal conditions around here for the next 2 weeks…

I will believe that when I see it, but it’s one of the very few times in the past several years we have seen a drier than normal pattern on the models. You will also notice the much above normal rain in Texas and Oklahoma. The wetter those areas get, the more that’s likely to temper any summer heat that can form.

Enjoy your gorgeous Monday and take care.
