Milder and breezy today... colder air coming...

>> Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Let me say this right off the bat.... if you are wanting sustained warmth, I think you are going to have to wait until April. The Arctic Oscillation is deep into the negative territory, and that will continue to favor a chilly pattern in the eastern US for the next 10 days. See the top line on the chart below:

With that said, we will squeeze in a milder day today with highs topping 60. However, it looks like 50s tomorrow and then 40s for highs Thursday.

See the video for more on the possibilities with our next system this weekend. A very well-defined cold air damming setup will await the system.

Hi Matt,
You mentioned a well-defined cold air damming setup for the upcoming weekend. With that said and a storm coming up, would that increase the likelihood of snow event in this scenario? God bless, TK

Hahaha..... yeah, forget those Spring temps for a while......

It would take a very healthy CAD setup for this to work out for parts of NC. Euro still holding onto the idea for areas near and north of I-40 with its 12z run.
