Full sunshine will be on display for our Friday with highs in the upper 50s in many spots across the region.
Our next cold front will slide in Sunday and bring with it the chance of some showers Sunday and Sunday night. The European and NAM models then develop another wave of low pressure that rides through and gives us more rain chances Monday. The GFS is much drier Monday.
As I cautioned earlier in the week, we could see some big changes with the potential system in the Tuesday-Wednesday time frame. The upper level pattern remains very chaotic, and it now appears the energy will bundle much farther north and east than some other modeling had indicated. If that scenario is correct, our region winds up dry Tuesday and Wednesday. That appears to be the case as of now.
Things still look to be lining up for a fairly interesting weather pattern for the final 10 days of the month. Another cold front will move through by next Thursday or Friday, and then we will watch for incoming storm systems from the west.
The 0z run of the GFS was fun for snow lovers to look at.....and I showed some panels from that in today's video. Please remember that you can take absolutely no specifics from the longer range modeling. However, I am just showing you that some players are on the field for the possibility of more interesting times later this month.
Here's today's video...
