Roller Coaster Ride Of Temperatures This Week

Written by on February 8, 2015 in Local Forecast Discussion

Today saw cloudless skies for all of ENC where we saw high temperatures reach into the low 70s for many inland areas. Tonight, temperatures will only fall into the mid to upper 40s thanks to a nice southwesterly breeze.

Temperatures for Monday rebound with the continued southwesterly flow ahead of the next cold front. Right now the forecast highs are mid to upper 60s for most areas except for the southern third of ENC potentially getting into the low 70s before the front approaches.

It is possible for higher temperatures tomorrow but will be dependent on when the clouds begin to move into the area. Current model runs show a time frame of about noon over western sections to about 3:00 PM over the coastal sections. Rain should hold off for the early part of the afternoon, then begin to overspread the area from west to east sometime after 3:00 PM. I don’t expect any thunderstorms at this time as upper level dynamics remain stable.

Rain forecast to pass through the area Monday evening and night.

The front will clear the coast early Tuesday morning with low temperatures dropping into the low 40s before sunrise. Skies will remain mostly cloudy during the morning hours with a slight chance of a stray shower remaining. Winds will come from the north after the frontal passage which will bring cold air with it as high temperatures struggle to make it into the upper 40s.

Another Arctic front will dive southward across the country mid-week. Southwesterly flow ahead of the front will increase our temperatures into the mid 50s by Thursday. The front will reach the area by Thursday afternoon and will quickly move offshore by Thursday night. Precipitation chances are unlikely as moisture will be limited.

Temperatures plummet as the Arctic air comes crashing in Thursday night with most of the area only seeing high temperatures reaching the upper 30s to lower 40s and overnight temperatures in the lower 20s.  The Arctic airmass will remain in place through the weekend.
