Good Super Bowl Sunday to one and all. We have arrived at the day that has basically become a national holiday filled with hot wings, 6 foot subs and pizzas. The weather kinda takes a backseat on a day like this and I can’t argue with that. I mean… it’s hard to compete with all of that AND the possibility of a wardrobe malfunction. But, we will do our best to keep your attention for a bit.
The weather out there today will start out ugly with low clouds, fog and scattered showers hanging on. Some wet snow will fly across parts of the mountains. Conditions will slowly improve into the afternoon hours and we may even see a few rays of sun. Temps today will hit the low and mid 40s for many.
Monday into Tuesday look pretty good with readings in the upper 40s.
The mid-week system will need to be watched for the possibility of some overrunning light rain or snow. The models are basically split on this with the European most aggressive.
The end of the week continues to feature a big dip in the jet stream across the eastern half of the country. This will allow for much colder air to pour into our region as temps go below normal into the coming weekend. The setup is also going to try its best to produce a storm across the east coast. The latest GFS is starting to pick up on this…
That’s a nice shot of cold coming in behind whatever storm does develop and is similar to the European Model from a few days ago.
The Canadian Model is looking similar…
We are fighting the seasonal trend with this one, but it should have our attention as it matches up with the time period the indices were hinting at some something wintry.
The overall look from the GFS Ensembles continues to be a cold one next weekend into early the following week…
Happy Super Bowl Sunday and take care.
