General Discussion

Good morning! A secondary cold front will slip across the area today while a bit of upper-level energy also drifts across the entire region. There is a good deal of drier air building in from the west – so we should enjoy a quiet day with seasonably mild temperatures. Surface high pressure will stretch from James Bay through the southeastern United States late this afternoon – and this ridge will continue to migrate eastward overnight tonight into tomorrow. A backdoor cold front will slide south and wash out late tomorrow – and by Sunday, a warm front will be pushing into the Eastern Great Lakes but turning stationary by Sunday afternoon. A series of systems will start to impact the area with some showers for the middle of next week – and the stubborn upper-level low is expected to dominate the pattern and keep things largely unsettled late next week with a cool, damp pattern lasting for several days. Temperatures will remain below normal through most of the second half of next week – rebounding back to more seasonable levels by the following weekend and the opening of May.
