Monday, April 16 Morning Forecast Discussion

After a stormy and cool weekend, it is a cool start to our Monday with temperatures in the 30s area wide and wind chills close to freezing as we start the day. Under abundant sunshine and west-southwest winds, highs will climb into the middle and upper 60s for us today. High pressure slides over the area tonight, and with lighter winds, we could see some patchy frost Tuesday morning as we drop into the middle and upper 30s for lows.

High pressure builds in aloft starting Tuesday and lasting through most of the week to have temperatures warm into the upper 70s Tuesday and low 80s Wednesday before a weak cold front passes. This front will likely be dry as it passes, but I cannot completely rule out a shower, but chances are too low to mention on the seven day.

We remain above average with ample sunshine for Thursday and Friday before clouds return Saturday ahead of our next system that arrives on Sunday. For being almost a week out, models are in fairly good agreement of this system and timing with rain arriving as early as after midnight to as late as noon, which is a narrow window for a week away. This system will have to be monitored closely as we are already seeing signs this system could bring another round of severe weather to the area.
