SYNOPSIS... Seasonal and dry high pressure will remain over the region through Wednesday. A weak cold front will cross the area Thursday. High pressure briefly returns before another weak frontal passage on Sunday.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 1000 PM EDT...The surface cold front continues to drop southward through the southern edge of the CWFA and should completely clear thru the area overnight. Only a few locations in sheltered northern mountain valleys appear cool enough for any patchy frost formation, so no advisory will be issued. Lows mainly in the 40s, except for some 30s in the mountain valleys.
Deep layer NW flow will continue, with heights rising and the pressure gradient relaxing through Tuesday. Surface high pressure will build over from the north behind the front and push lower thicknesses into the region. Weak downsloping will continue to provide some measure of warming east of the mountains despite the falling thicknesses - with maximum temperatures fairly close to climatology.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... At 2 PM Monday: On Tuesday evening an upper trough will be off the East Coast, while an upper ridge will be over the Great Plains. The ridge retrogresses over the Rockies on Wednesday while the eastern trough progresses offshore, and another trough amplifies over the MS River Valley. By Thursday the upper trough reaches the Great Lakes, and the Central and Southern Appalachians, with an associated shortwave crossing the mountains, while the upper ridge progresses to the Eastern Slopes of the Rockies.
At the surface, on Tuesday evening a cold front will be well south of our area, an high pressure will extend from the Great Lakes to the Carolinas. High pressure persists over our area into Wednesday night, finally weakening as a cold front approaches from the west on Thursday. Meager moisture ahead of and along the front will limit precipitation amounts, while instability will be limited for convective development. Temperatures will run near normal.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... At 2 PM Monday: On Thursday evening an upper trough will be over the Eastern USA, while an upper ridge will exist along the East Slopes of the Rockies. The pattern progresses such that by Saturday the easter trough moves offshore, while the ridge upstream remains along the Front Range, resulting in deamplification and more zonal flow. By monday the upper ridge progresses to the MS River Valley, while the trough downstream moves little, and as a result, the upper pattern amplifies.
On Thursday evening a cold front will be dropping south across our area, with only limited moisture along the boundary. High pressure settles in over our area on Friday and Saturday. Another cold front reaches our area from the north on Saturday night, moving slowly south of the area by Monday. Moisture with the second front will be limited as well, and instability will be lacking. Temperatures will run slightly above normal.
