2/23 – Rob’s “Way Above Seasonal Conditions” Afternoon Forecast
Clear skies and calm winds expected tonight as warmer temperatures will begin moving back into the area. The surface high pulls east of the area late today and into Wednesday, dragging slightly higher surface moisture back to the area from southerly winds.
By early Thursday, an area of low pressure moving across the Great Lakes/NE area. I can’t rule out some isolated showers as this boundary eventually slows down. It will not take much to get at least some light showers going with just enough low-level convergence at work. The front will pull back north again as a warm front, out ahead of the next approaching disturbance from the west.
Temperature trends are looking very warm for the upcoming weekend, as high-pressure begins to build back into the region. The strength of this ridge will try to keep most active weather well to our north, but a few showers will be in the area this weekend.
