Lots to like in the weather pattern so far this week.
Saturday – Warming Up! – Early: 29°, High: 58°
Daybreak temperatures will be in the upper 20°s on Saturday. So, cold.
But, warming up pretty fast under some sun.
Winds on Saturday will begin to shift from the out of the ENE to out of the ESE.
Sunday – Clouds Increase & Few Showers Late Afternoon — Early: 35° High: 55°
Temperatures will be around the freezing mark Sunday morning. We will begin to see cloud cover increase during the early morning.
Southerly winds will help bring in some moisture from the Gulf. We may see some rain Sunday afternoon or evening, but just isolated showers.
An upper level shortwave will accelerate over the area Sunday evening into early Monday.
Extended: A few showers may linger in the morning hours on Monday, with clearing during the afternoon.
Editor’s Note — Long Range Speculation: After a quiet week, the GFS model drags a surface low up through the Great Lakes next weekend, and spreads some rain here, but the low is too far away to cause us any real shenanigans.
The Euro model also has this feature, developing a powerful surface low passing to our north. This can maybe cause severe shenanigans, but it’s so far away I’d draw zero conclusions.
The Storm Prediction Center wrote today: “a more substantial influx of moisture and potential severe threat might devolve from eastern Texas into the southeastern states days 7-8 … models are currently not in agreement regarding the timing and amplitude of this feature.” What they said.
Translation: We have something to watch.
