Upcoming Warmth

| comments

During the past few weeks we have had really decent weather--generally dry, with periods of above and below normal temperatures.

Such variability, centered around climatological temperatures, is what normal is all about.
There has been enough sun and warmth for a miracle to happen---I actually have red, ripe tomatoes!  Few pleasures in life are greater.  Here is the proof:

Well, another miracle is occurring...we are going into a warm up period through the weekend and then the heat really revs up on Tuesday and Wednesday as a monster ridge builds up over the western U.S.  And it just stays in place forever.

Right now a weak trough is moving through, bringing increased cloudiness over the region.  Tomorrow (Friday) we should wake up to clouds, but they should break up during the afternoon...low to mid 70s.   But on Saturday ridging aloft develops (see upper level chart) and the temps warm with more sun.  Perhaps a bit warmer on Sunday.
But early in the week ridging really develops (graphic) and temperatures could hit the mid 80s.
And do you see that features in the lower right...another hurricane.  The NWS GFS model has this storm approaching the East Coast late Friday (see forecast for Friday AM below) but the forecast will surely change.  The latest solution gets the hurricane/tropical storm close before it swings to the NE off of New England.

The NWS Climate Prediction Center is suggesting increased probabilities for above normal temperatures through next week. (see graphic).

No fried green tomatoes for me!

Just a reminder...will be starting my KPLU weather segment tomorrow (Friday) at 9 AM...right after birdnote.
