Norman, OK – An upper level trough over the Rockies supports an amplifying upper level ridge over the southern plains. At the surface an east to west pressure gradient favors a warm moist southerly flow. Expect dewpoints to steadily climb over the next 24 hours and the likelihood of precipitation to increase.
The trough moves east towards midweek, and will likely bring a cold front through the region with heavy precip, gusty winds and the return of cooler temperatures.
An upper level ridge will be building in the east towards the beginning of next week, which makes it possible for storm development offshore to menace the east coast. An area of interest just off the east coast of Florida as a low pressure system develops north-northeast. Models diverge on where this storm is going, the GFS doesn’t develop it a whole lot and takes it right out to sea. **UPDATE The GFS 12z, still out to sea, but significantly closer to the coast** The ECMWF 0z has a more intriguing solution: Continue reading
Discussion: An upper level cutoff low near the Eastern Maine/Canadian border will remain in that area for a couple days before finally sliding east after midweek. At the surface, circulation patterns around an area of high pressure to our west and low pressure to our east will keep a brisk wind out of the north and west. The high will gradually assume control over our region’s weather through the end of the week. Sunny skies and cool temperatures will stick with us for several days.
Here’s the Five Day:
Discussion: An upper level shortwave trough in the north central US will traverse New England during the day on Sunday and become cutoff just off the coast of Maine. At the surface, a cold front works its way into the Tri-State on Sunday, and brings with it a chance for showers and maybe some thunder but instability is expected to be marginal at best. After that things dry out for at least the first half of the workweek.
Saturday: A sunny start, but clouds will gradually increase in coverage as the day goes on. High temperatures in the low to mid 70′s.
Saturday Night: Mostly Cloudy with Lows in the lower 60′s

Synopsis: An area of high pressure that has been with us for much of the week begins to slide toward the eastern part of our area tomorrow. The southern flow will usher in some warmer temperatures for our Friday. A cold front then approaches the area on Late Saturday into Sunday. Some showers or even a thunderstorm are possible with its passage. A coastal storm next week looks like it will be suppressed too far to the south for any impacts on the New England region, so sunny and dry conditions should prevail for the beginning of your workweek.
Here’s the Five Day:
Discussion: A Cold Front approaches the region on Saturday and with it comes a chance for scattered showers through a good portion of the weekend. On Monday of next week, blocking high pressure will sit to our north while an area of low pressure tries to develop off the North Carolina coast. Depending on the exact track and strength of this system, southern New England could be a target for a prolonged rain and wind event sometime Tuesday or Wednesday.
There is still a high degree of uncertainty, so check back for later forecasts.
Discussion: High pressure remains in control over the New England Region today. Over the next couple days it will gradually slide east as an area of disturbed weather develops over central Canada. An associated cold front will approach this the area this weekend.
Forecast: Expect sunny skies and a warming trend between now and Friday.
