An Unsettled Start to the Week, but a Pattern Change arrives by the Weekend

June 4th, 2012 at 2:20 pm by under 4 Warn Weather

A stubborn area of low pressure near New England and the Maritimes will keep some influence over our region for most days this week, but the strength of that influence will gradually be waning. The signs of a pattern change which were apparent in last week’s ensemble means have actually strengthened. A building ridge of high pressure will raise heights considerably as we reach Sunday into early next week, likely spiking our temperatures to Much Above Average for a few days, before settling down to Above Average.

In the meantime, sky conditions for the Transit of Venus don’t look promising, though some breaks in the overcast are not out of the question. On Wednesday, still cool temps aloft with some surface heating may allow a few spotty tshowers to pop up.

The weekend, in addition to being warmer, should be mostly–if not completely–dry. But there is always the cliche “never trust a warm front” mets use, and the proximity of a warm front at the start of the weekend MIGHT develop some elevated convection near us. MIGHT.

    It’s not precipitation. The radar is in clear air mode.

    Dave – you probably caught that storm in its decaying/weakening phase. The cloud formations are spectacular from fronts. I’ve witnessed similar formations in past years but didn’t have the cam on me.
