4/7 – The Chief’s “Clearing” Thursday Morning Forecast

An upper low-pressure is going to move only very slowly eastward over the next several days, from the Mid-West, reaching Maine on Sunday. A minor disturbance rotating around the upper low will reinforcing surges of cold, dry air into the region over the next 18-24 hours. The only real noticeable impact will be to have several surges of gusty winds, mainly during the daytime hours the next few days. Once the clouds depart this morning, we may not see any clouds until Sunday, as moisture flow will be very low.  The air mass will be rather dry, with dew points mainly in the 30s across the area, and wouldn’t be surprised to see values even lower in a few places.

Not a lot of spread on high temperature guidance for the most part the next few days. Moderation period begins Sunday as an amplifying upper level high-pressure following the upper long wave trough will be steadily expanding north as it passes across the Mississippi Valley.
