By this time next week, we'll have had temperatures ranging from the 20s, back into the 70s, then into the 20s again. Unusual? Not really. As the cold air masses start their move south out of Canada, they often battle some residual warm and moist air. This is why we have our secondary severe weather season. As all this takes place, the severe threat will have to be watched. At this time, the threat appears low.
As mentioned on the previous blog post, I'm already looking at the weekend into next week. I think showers will move through the area Friday with one wave of moisture. It could be one of those cold, dreary, and rainy days. Then as we move along into the weekend, the Gulf of Mexico really begins to open up and the humidity and warmth starts to advance northward. At the same time, there's another blast of cold air coming out of Canada. It has the potential to be just as cold as this one and maybe even colder. I'm going to once again stick with the data from the European model.
