After basically a several week stretch of pretty brutal winter weather a much needed break is underway starting today and lasting through Monday or so , beyond Monday we are still watching the potential for a major winter storm Tuesday through Thursday but for now we will focus on the break from winter.
We see a change in the pattern occurring which features falling heights over the western US and finally some rain for California, this will lead to rising heights over the east and thus rising temperatures with each passing day. These rising heights will force any storm systems to track well north of the area with overall little impacts expected and mostly dry weather.
After a brutal cold start temperatures will rapidly rise into the mid 20s to low 30s as a ridge begins to build over the east, lows tonight will fall into mid 10s to low 20s with clear skies
Tomorrow as high pressure shifts off the coast a clock wise flow will put us under southwest flow with highs in the mid 30s to low 40s, there will likely be increasing clouds but overall dry conditions.
Saturday a disturbance will pass north, can’t rule out some light rain or mix in the morning especially for the interior but overall mostly dry conditions are expected with highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s, lows Saturday night will not fall much and will actually see rising temperatures late night.
Super Bowl Sunday will be the warmest day of the period! While a cold front will move through it looks like a mostly cloudy but dry day for most with just some isolated showers, the cold front should push through during the afternoon with cooling yet drying conditions, highs will be in the lower 40s interior to mid to upper 40s elsewhere even a 50 degree reading possible along the coast.
The cold front will come through Sunday afternoon with falling temperatures and we enter a wintry pattern once more starting Monday , and again watching for a potential major storm, as of now yesterday’s post covers what we know and what we don’t know yet.
