Warm conditions are expected today thanks to strong southwest surface flow. Southwest winds of 15 to 20 mph may occasionally gust up to 35 mph. This will lead to highs in the upper 50s. Be sure to tie down loose objects outside!
We’ll remain fairly mild overnight thanks to those southwest winds and increasing cloud cover. The GFS model says we’ll remain in the mid 40s.
A cold front will move through the region on Thursday. Temperatures ahead of the front will warm into the upper 40s before the front moves through in the late morning and early afternoon.
The models are split in regard to how fast the moisture moves out of the region. The NAM is faster, suggesting less rain and very little chance of snow Thursday night.
Meanwhile the GFS is slower, suggesting a bit more rain and a bit more snow Thursday night. Hopefully, we’ll know a bit more about this this afternoon.
Friday will be cold, as highs will struggle into the low 30s despite sunny skies.
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great hump day!
