11/17 – Rob’s “Very Warm” Midweek Forecast
The warmer temperatures will continue as today will bring temps in the upper 70s, with many areas likely seeing 80, with some even surpassing it. Our attention shifts to the west as our next cold front approaches later Wednesday through early Thursday. A few light showers may develop Wednesday night through early Thursday out ahead of the front, however the environment does not support the development of widespread or heavy rain Chances for thunder are looking isolated at best, with areas to the southwest having the best Chance.
The front will be offshore by the start of the extended period, with surface flow expected to be breezy out of the north/northeast. Flow briefly shifts to easterly as a surface high moves east and eventually off the Atlantic coast by Sunday. Another strong upper level disturbance will move across the Great Lakes region Sunday and Monday. This brings yet another cold front through our area, but moisture is limited so rain chances are expected to be light.
High temperatures trending cool on Friday behind Thursday`s cold front, with most areas sitting in the low to mid 60s. Highs then gradually warm back up over the weekend, returning to the mid-70s by Sunday afternoon. After Sunday`s cold front they will trend back cooler once again, dropping back into the low to mid 60s early next week.
