Weekend Uncertainty

Good Thursday everyone! Hopefully your day has been good so far! 

Not to much to talk about in the weather world today. A mix of sun and clouds expected for your Thursday as we warm into the upper 60's to low 70's. 

Friday is going to be very warm. Southwest flow sets up, that is a blow torch wind for us, so we will see temperatures sky rocket into the upper 70's to low 80's. A frontal passage will be close to the area so a few showers and even a thunderstorm is possible late in the day into the evening. 

This front will bring some uncertainty to the weekend forecast. As high pressure continues to move over portions of Canada and the Northeast that will allow our winds to shift to the Northeast. If you've lived here any length of time you know a Northeast flow brings us wedge like conditions. So forecast models are having a difficult time determining where this backdoor front will stall out. In the latest runs of the GFS and Euro model it shows the front stalling out along the interstate 40 corridor. This will likely give us a cloudy, cool, and even some light rain along and north of 40.

For Sunday it looks like the Southerly winds will prevail, and start to break down the wedge. But again if you've lived here any length of time, you know wedges are hard to break down once they establish themselves. 

By the start of next week, more warm weather continues as highs once again make a run into the low to mid 70's. 

We remain fairly dry around here for the next week after a fairly wet October. Many locations expect to see less than an inch of rain through the next week.

Looking long term, their could be a change in the weather pattern, but we will save that for another day! 

 

Have a great day!
