The deep low pressure trough that is lethargically moving across our area today is finally ready to weaken and move away. We have settled into a cool pattern that will be slow to change. Warmer afternoons are likely beginning Thursday as the trough lifts out of our area, but mornings will likely remain cool. Humidity will stay about the same. The warming trend comes to an abrupt halt this weekend. The approach of a cold front on Saturday will increase the southerly wind flow, which will likely bring a spike in both the humidity and the warmth. Clouds will accompany the cold front, but the air above the ground is dry enough that showers will be few and far between with this cold front. The cold front will tap into some Canadian chill and drag it southward toward us. Temperatures will drop drastically on Sunday, and the chill will linger Monday and Tuesday before some warming begins on Wednesday in response to a warmer wind west of high pressure that advances to our east. Another cold front appears set to move through our area as early as Thursday, so the upward swing of temperatures may very well be short-lived.
