I’m starting to get a bad feeling about what this summer’s weather is going to be like. Usually when the weather pattern changes, it does so in a dramatic way, but so far I see no signs of it changing. In fact, the longer-range weather models, which have been hinting at a dramatic change in the weather, are now showing the weather remaining pretty much like it is.
The one bright area is that we are moving closer and closer to summer, so even if we stay on the cool side, temperatures are still getting warmer.
After a wet start to the week over southern sections, it looks like things will dry out. Along with the drier air will come sunshine and fairly mild conditions with highs in the low 20s. Over northern regions, an area of low pressure is forecast to push through on Wednesday and Thursday, bringing clouds and showers.
Over the weekend, another area of low pressure looks to affect our region with clouds and showers. Southern areas should be mild once again as the winds turn southerly but northern areas look to remain on the chilly side.
High pressure will settle in briefly early next week before another area of low pressure begins to affect us. This low is forecast to develop over the western U. S., pumping plenty of moisture in our direction. So it looks like much of next week will be dominated by showers and thunderstorms.
Usual temperature range for this period: Highs: 16 to 27C. Lows: 3 to 13C.
