Happy Fathers Day

We have been experiencing a stretch of very pleasant weather the past few days.  Yesterday we had a high of 73° the low was 50°.  After today, it’s looking like a very warm week with limited chances for rain. Tuesday should bring the worst of the heat and humidity.  It still appears above normal temps and dry weather will continue through the rest of the month.

 

Take a look at the weather extremes for our main climate sites for the history of Father’s Day, which dates back to 1966.

Forecast Discussion

-- Warm and Dry weather will dominate the weather this week --

An upper level ridge over the United States will dominate the
weather pattern through the week. Looking at the ensemble SA
tables for both the GEFS and the ECMWF M climate QPF anomalies
and they are both dry for at least a week. Any precipitation
chances continue to trend either east or south of the region so
precipitation is not expected.

-- Temps could level off Wednesday --

As the upper level ridge builds into the region it will advect
hot air into the region with 850mb temps at +20C maxes Monday and
Tuesday. A dry cold front will flatten the ridge briefly
Wednesday, bringing in slightly cooler air. Temperature trends in
the EC and the GFS continue to be cooler then previous runs. The
GFS is cooler then the EC which would mean temps in the low to mid
80s. Am leaning toward the EC with grids having Max temps in the
mid to upper 80s.
 So temps Monday and Tuesday will be 10 to 15 degrees above
normal with temps Wednesday through the end of the week only 5 to
10 degrees above normal. Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds.

Another beautiful morning with a temp of 52 and cloudless skies once again. It’s been nice to be able to have the windows open the past two nights, but it appears to be short-lived. The local tv met showed upper 80s and 90s for two weeks following today. He said there will be very little chance of rain, as well. Things will likely become significantly dry without some precip during this above average temp stretch.
