We are back after an AMAZING weekend. 80 degrees Sunday for the first time since September 18. Bright blue sky and low humidity. It was perfection.
Today? More of the same! In fact it might be a degree or two warmer this afternoon.
The pattern that was responsible for the amazing late-week/weekend weather is still in place. An “Omega Block” remains stuck over the US, with the “good part” of the block (the ridge) right over us.
TUESDAY: “NOT AS WARM”
A weak cool front will slip through with little fanfare late tonight and early Tuesday. We expect no rain with this. We will notice that tomorrow is “not as warm”, but still above average with highs well into the 60s.
IT WILL RAIN AGAIN.
This amazing run HAS to end at some point and finally the pattern will break down enough to allow some moisture to head our way at the end of the week. After a nice Wednesday, some showers are likely Thursday into Friday.
At this point, I think the weekend will be nice overall. Saturday is very likely to be dry…if we see any weekend showers it would be on Sunday. Highs remain above average (but it will not be as warm as this past weekend).
QUICK LONG RANGE THOUGHTS
Overall, it looks like a mild to warm pattern through the end of April. A cool day here and there, sure….but overall above-average. Precipitation is likely to be below average for this time of the year. May could be toasty!
