Technical Forecast Discussion

Short term (Sunday 6/9 through Tuesday 6/11)

Long wave troughing enters the region on Sunday that helps bring up a low pressure system from the south. This brings in moisture that could help produce isolated storms and showers for late Sunday afternoon and the evening. A cold front will push through the region on Monday bringing in clouds and rain. Convection could occur along the frontal boundary leading to storms in the afternoon. Short-lived high pressure will be in the area on Tuesday that will break up clouds before conditions become influenced by a deep upper level trough later into Tuesday. High pressure will quickly cross the region mid-Tuesday that leads to a break in rain and clouds for that day.

Long term (Wednesday 6/12 through Saturday 6/15)

Another upper level trough moves into the area on Wednesday which brings in a low pressure system from the northwest. Moisture will be advected into the area late Wednesday as a cold front and secondary cold front push into the region early Thursday. The pressure gradient created btween the two cold fronts may create gusty surface winds if models continue to show the fornts in close proximity. By Friday, mid-level ridging begins to strengthen which will create clear conditions for the day. High pressure exits the region on Sunday as a torugh moves in which will bring in clouds and precipitation.
