This forecast period will feature a very quiet weather pattern with
no period of precipitation expected in the next 7 days. Temperatures
on the other hand will be a little more variable through the next
week. Today will be one of the warmer days of the week with strong
WAA out ahead of an approaching cold front. Highs will rise into the
upper 50s to mid 60s with breezy SSW winds. Tonight a cold front
will move through the area with strong CAA behind it. This will keep
highs on Tuesday ranging from the mid 40s across the north to the
mid 50s across the south. Canadian surface high pressure will move
into the area Tuesday night making for the coldest night in the
forecast period with lows in the upper teens to mid 20s. High
pressure will remain over the area on Wednesday keep temperatures
cool with highs only reaching the upper 30s to mid 40s. A warming
trend is then expected for the second half of the work week as WAA
returns in the wake of the departing surface high. Highs by Friday
will rise into the 60s. On Friday night a upper level trough digging
from the Canadian Plains into the Great Lakes will force another
cold front through the forecast area. Again, no precipitation is
expected with the frontal passage but temperatures will return
closer to seasonal normals on Saturday with highs in the low to mid
50s. Surface high pressure then moves back into the area on Saturday
night and Sunday with highs in the mid 40s to mid 50s.
