Current Forecast Meet the Forecaster

Technical Forecast Discussion

Short Term (Sunday 4/23/2023 through Thursday 4/27/2023)

Cooler than normal conditions have continued to impact our area, and they will continue to do so into the work week. With temperatures expected to drop close to and just below freezing, frost is likely to occur due to diurnal humidity patterns. Frost is most likely to occur in areas where cloud cover isn’t consistent, so with this, widespread frost isn’t likely. The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the area due to this likelihood.

Once we hit the middle of the week, we see the effects of an upper level trough and a surface low pressure system. While the low pressure is expected to remain quite North of our area, we could see some stray associated showers on Wednesday. Once we see its effects, this low appears to be lifting, and therefore we see westerly winds. Temperatures begin to climb into the mid 60s for the daytime highs, and the chance for rain remains consistent with increasing cloud coverage as the weekend approaches.

Long Term (Thursday 4/27/2023 through Sunday 4/30/2023)

A potent low pressure center is expected to arrive this upcoming weekend with strong southeasterly winds and precipitation. We could see convective storms pop up from this as well. Keep updated as model confidence changes as the weekend approaches.
