After More Record Warmth, Cooler–but not Cool–Pattern Will Arrive On ScheduleMarch 19th, 2012 at 1:48 pm by Don Paul under 4 Warn Weather
The warm 500 mb ridge will be peaking in our region on Wednesday this week. The work week will stay unseasonably warm, with a few degrees cooling arriving on Friday, and a little more over the weekend with some unsettled conditions at that time. But as implied in the headline, Cooler is the word–not Cool, by climatological standards. Still after the amazing warm spell we’ll be continuing to experience, Monday’s probable highs in the 50s may SEEM cool to many. Not much has changed in the extended range since a week ago today, which reflects the high confidence we had in the extent of this warm spell’s persistence and strength. The Ensemble Means still show flattening of this amazing ridge by the weekend, and maybe a little more retrograding of the ridge by early April. But there are no apparent signs of any shots of below average temperatures.
