Technical Forecast Discussion

Short term (Sunday 12/16 through Tuesday 12/18)

Lack of upper level flow on Sunday will likely result in calm conditions and relatively low cloud cover for the day as ridging will dominate despite the shortwave trough south of the region. A brief period of cloudiness will occur Sunday night as a band of moisture generate from the shortwave move through. Another upper level ridge moves in on Tuesday as the day looks to be exceptionally dry and will allow for warmer air to move into the region along with high pressure.

Long term(Wednesday 12/19 through Saturday 12/22)

Strengthening upper level ridging is present for Wednesday as warm air remains in the region putting highs around the mid to high 40s. A rather deep upper level trough follows upper level ridging which will bring in cloud clover early Wednesday evening ahead of low pressure system. Precipitation becomes likely starting the latter half of Thursday as the warm front of the system approaches. Temperatures make sure precip stays as rain, but a chance for snow becomes possible late Friday as the cold front brings in colder temperatures. Another ridge will push high pressure into the region on Saturday clearing conditions.
