Cold Again Tuesday, Then Moderating to End the Week.

Posted: Updated:

Just time for a quick update as have to be off to the new building for rehearsals shortly. The main forecast issue revolves around some energy aloft that is now located in the Southern Rockies and how/where/when/and with what intensity it will eject eastward later this week. As is often the case, there are a wide range of solutions that have been coming in from the various operational data runs so far today, but only one that shows any precipitation potential at all from this system. In the event this system does come through with the intensity of the stronger solution, there still appears to be some moisture limitations so only some light precipitation may occur for our more SE counties on Thursday. Given the dry consensus and lack of consistency with the one solution that is trying to wring out some precipitation, will keep the forecast dry for now.

In fact, as you can see from the QPF map on the right, our prospects for any precipitation appear to be pretty minimal right on into the coming weekend. That will like extend into at least early the following week as well as no major storm systems appear to be headed our way anytime soon.

That leaves temperatures as the main forecast issue and after another very cold day on Tuesday in which temperatures will not make it much above freezing, we should see a gradual moderation for the rest of the week and to start the weekend. In fact, we should be back into the 50s by Friday and Saturday along with southerly winds. Another cool down will arrive on Sunday as another cold front arrives and that should keep us rather chilly going into early next week. However, as mentioned earlier, this system does not appear to have much if any moisture to work with either and it still looks dry.

So, stay tuned and check back for updates.
