Spring Like Forecast... In Short Term

The short-term forecast calls for a warming trend and eventually, April showers. But how about the long-term forecast?

After seeing a light snowfall in areas this past weekend, many of us gave the 60s today a warm welcome. Luckilly, the warm-up is expected to continue...

Southwesterly winds will dominate on Tuesday (upper panel) and will pull warm air from the south into our region. Temperatures will sit several degrees above the freezing point at the 850 mb level, which translates to highs in the 70s at the surface. 

 

Hazy, partly sunny skies are expected for much of tomorrow and Wednesday, before April showers eventually push into our region...

Although conditions will be mostly dry in our region Wednesday, showers will pass north of our area in central Ohio (upper panel). By Thursday morning, showers are expected and will become widespread with possible thunderstorms in the afternoon (middle and bottom panel). 

If you are wondering if this past weekend will be our last shot of snow, well here is the cold outlook for April 10th...

The air at 850mb is expected to drop below freezing on this day (upper panel). Furthermore, the rain/snow line (yellow line) at the surface drops south of our region which hints at the likelihood of snow (bottom panel). 

 

Have a good night!
