One More Cloudy Day…Sunshine Returns Tuesday – Sunday Evening Forecast Update 845 PM


After the clouds stuck around this morning, the sky did clear this afternoon as expected and temperatures rose into the middle 50s for most spots. Clouds have already begun to increase this evening in advance of another upper-level impulse. I’m only expecting primarily a continued increase in cloud cover in association with this feature throughout tonight into tomorrow, but a few areas of light drizzle are possible with most areas staying dry. Highs should be in the low 40s for places like Hamilton, but areas south and east of I-20/59 could wind up in the 50s once again.

A northerly flow prevails Tuesday and as a result we should see lots of sunshine with temperatures remaining in the mid to upper 40s. That trend continues into Wednesday but as the winds shift around to the south, temperatures should actually be a good 10 degrees warmer into the mid and upper 50s. Meanwhile, a piece of energy in the northern and southern stream will be traversing the eastern United States, but they never really phase up with one another. Therefore, while some showers are possible Thursday, I’m not expecting a big-time rain event at this time. Changes can still occur, however, so continue to monitor potential alterations to the forecast.

A quick shot of fairly cold air arrives Friday with highs struggling to get into the low 40s area-wide despite lots of sunshine. The progressive weather pattern continues as another storm system approaches Saturday night into Sunday. This system continues to look strong, but I’m only expecting a decent round of rain Sunday with no thunderstorm activity. Temperatures should rise into the mid 50s Sunday.

There are some indications that some Arctic air could filter in from southern Canada by the first part of next week. The morning and afternoon runs of the GFS showed this, but the Euro doesn’t quite bring the bitterly cold air this far south. We’ll continue to watch this over the next couple of days and keep you posted!
