Weekly General Weather  Discussion

The general trend over the next month will be for warmer than normal temperatures with near normal precipitation for the next two weeks followed by a trend to drier than normal by May. The upcoming  week will very likely on the whole  be above normal then fall to near normal with overall normal precipitation across the forecast region.

As mentioned the expected trend is for above normal temperatures for the next month. The  next time period where there is a slight possibility of significantly cooler than normal temperatures now seems to be  most likely   around April 25-27.

On the average still expect the temperatures will be above normal and precipitation near normal for the period April to May, but with  a definite trend to drier than normal conditions as we get into May.

Forecast discussion day 3 – 5  (19 Apr – 21 Apr) Temperatures warm to above normal; scattered rain showers throughout the period with isolated thunderstorms in western sections. Expect a broad area of high pressure to slowly move east of the forecast region from early to mid-period. This will allow a weak cold front to move from west to east into the region by late in the period. Ahead of the front the wind flow is expected to be from the southwest bringing warm and humid air with scattered showers across the region. Expect temperatures to be above the seasonal norm early and then fall back near to the seasonal average by late in the period. Expect high temperatures to range from the low 70s in the far north to low 80s in the far south early to mid-period, then rise to the mid70s in the far north to lower 90s in the south by late in the period. Low temperatures ranging from the low 50s to low 60s. Precipitation amounts will likely be in the 0.15 – 0.30” range.
