A persistent northwest flow aloft pattern will remain in place
through the forecast period, resulting in dry weather and
temperatures generally above normal. Overnight lows will be similar
to last night, with mostly clear skies with the exception of some
thin cirrus moving through the region. Heights rise into Sunday with
H85 temperatures warming nearly 12C over the next 24 hours. Highs
will be considerably warmer than today, with afternoon readings
reaching the middle 40s to middle 50s. A strong shortwave trough
will dive into the middle Mississippi Valley on Monday, with an
accompanying cold front passing through the area. A strengthening
pressure gradient will produce gusty northwest winds behind the
front. Colder air lags behind this boundary, and afternoon
temperatures will warm into the 50s across many areas once again.
With drier air advecting into the area and strong northwest winds,
high fire danger is expected during the afternoon hours. Colder air
makes its way for Tuesday with readings closer to seasonal levels. A
couple more fronts approach and move through the area during the
workweek, with highs in the 50s prior to the arrival and 40s the
following day.
