Technical Forecast Discussion

Short term (Sunday 12/2 through Tuesday 12/4)

Dry air moves in behind the cold front on Sunday morning that will lead to cloud clearing. CAA that happens late Saturday will be removed Sunday as upper level ridging brings in southerly flow that brings in WAA as temperatures look to be in the low 60s for Sunday. Several disturbances are embedded in the upper levels for today that look to weaken the overall pattern and begin to create a broad upper level trough in its place. A low pressure system approaches late Monday. Clouds increase on Monday as the cold front approaches the region. The low pressure system will move northward leaving just the cold front to deal with. Some precipitation could occur on Tuesday as a shortwave trough will be over the area that looks to promote some instability a possibly create some flurries Tuesday night.

Long term (Wednesday 12/5 through Saturday 12/8)

The shortwave trough from Tuesday will promote some cloud cover for Wednesday, but models do not show enough moisture to warrant a chance for precipitation. A Cold front looks to pass through the area late Thursday night with showers possible from the afternoon into the late evening, with precipitation likely changing to snow after 9-10pm. High pressure will begin to form upstream of an upper level trough that moves out of the region that looks to promote clear skies and temperatures just above freezing for Friday and Saturday.
