A very cold start this morning with freezing temperatures in a few location, and northwest flow will continue to keep the area cool and
dry through the weekend. A cold front should move through the
region later tomorrow and this will only reinforce the airmass as the
atmosphere lacks the moisture to produce rainfall as the front
moves through. A cold morning across the northshore where
temperatures have flirted with the freezing mark most of the
night. Expect another sunny and cool day for the area and expect
the benign weather to continue through the weekend.
Next week deep layer ridge will build over the area on Monday and Tuesday.
This strong ridging will keep clear skies in place as the
atmosphere remains dry and stable. Temperatures will moderate as
highs get back closer to the 70s and overnight lows in the 40s.
Guidance still suggests at a chance of some shower across the area
in the Wednesday to Thursday time frame. Guidance is in better
agreement in a solution. Looks like a shortwave will move north of
the area and drive a boundary through the area that could kick off
a few showers Wednesday into Thursday. Then a reinforcing wave
moves through on its heels Friday. This may be the greater chance
of showers and possibly a storm early Friday morning. A blend of
guidance was used for the forecast and will have to continue to
re-evaluate rain chances as the we go through the week.
