Beautiful mostly sunny weather will dominate through Wednesday. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it. This is occurring because of the big Canadian Maritime Protector … or known as an upper level low in a blocking pattern. But this storm will slowly pull away and leave the door open for a system to come in from the west and bring us our best chance for rain this week on Thursday.
The pattern shows a ridge in the central states, and a trough in the northern corners in the Pacific NW and NE states. This will stay for the week. This new system coming in on Thursday will help to reinforce our trough and not bring in the heat from the central US.
Our temps this week will be very comfortable, with the warmest day likely to be Wednesday, and possibly Sunday or next Monday. The uncertainty here is due to the models being so confused. The big 3 show warm weather (GFS), a heat wave (GGEM) and comfy (EURO). So take your pick! (See Pictures above).
Actually, I see similarities from the Mid May pattern and the heat that ended the month. I think the same idea will occur here. The Thursday system is likely to split with one piece heading out to sea, the other stays along the coast and strengthens into a slow moving system that probably stays off shore, but close enough to keep us comfortable through next weekend. As this happens a ridge is likely to build in SE Canada, which could lead to a much warmer to hotter pattern coming after June 22. Again, similar to May.
Points for Next 7 Days:
- Sunshine and Breeze: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Some clouds mixed in at times with a nice breeze present as well.
- NW Thunderstorms: Slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm Monday night; greatest chance is Thursday.
- Canadian Maritime Protector: This system will drift NE and let go of control by Thursday. But pattern is still slow moving through the weekend.
- Off Shore Slow Mover: A cut off low should develop near NC/SC coastline and then drift NE. This should keep us in the comfy temperatures, yet lots of sunshine with a breeze at times. This is a pretty low confidence forecast right now. A shift west and we get wet, a shift east and we get really warm.
