DISCUSSION...
Current observations show west winds and mostly clear skies are
causing temperatures to warm above normal today. These conditions
should persist this week as the upper pattern becomes stagnant
with a ridge of high pressure holding over the western states.
Northwesterly flow aloft over the Central Plains will send a
series of cold fronts into the CWA, but this pattern will prevent
a significant cold airmass from developing in Canada so the fronts
will be weak and only provide modest cooling. In addition, the
upper troughs associated with these fronts will remain well to our
north so there will not be any precipitation associated with any
of the frontal passages.
