After a cold weekend, this upcoming week looks to be very spring like with temperatures well above normal, a dry start to the week will give way to stormier conditions by weeks end
A series of storng storm systems and a big trough entering the west coast will lead to a large ridge developing over the eastern and central US, this means a pattern with a southwest flow of warm Pacific/Gulf of Mexico air expanding northward throughout the eastern half of the nation especially beginning tomorrow for our neck of the woods, this pattern will be locked in throughout the whole week
Todays highs will still be on the chilly side for March standard in the upper 30s to low 40s, but tomorrow as that deep SW flow develops highs will quickly moderate into the 50s for most and a few low 60s in southern areas, lows will only fall into the 40s
Tuesday the moderation will continue with highs in the 60s for most of the area, a little cooler along the immediate coastline to as high as some lower 7os from Philadelphia points SW.
Wedensday will be the peak of the warm up as high pressure slides off the coast and leads th a Bermuda high type set up. Highs will range from the upper 60s to mid 70s for much of rhe area, cooler in the upper 50s to low 60s along the coastline. The period Monday-Wednesday will be dominated by sunshine as well
Thursday a bit more unsettled weather will begin to take hold as a frontal bounry drops south and east bringing increasing clouds and showers by night time into Friday. Slightly cooler conditions as well with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s both days. A brief break in rain on Saturday will lead to another perhaps slow moving storm system by Sunday that could bring periods of rain and showers through early next week, the mild conditions however will mostly stay in place with highs in the 50s lows in the 40s.
