Cooler/Unsettled weather behind big nor’easter

Behind the strong storm system which impacted our area this weekend, the weather will take a turn towards a cooler and slightly more unsettled

pattern. Prior to the system, above normal temperatures and fair weather were dominant, but as it looks now this storm will serve as a bit of a pattern-changer. It doesn’t look like we’ll return to much-above normal departures any time soon. Instead, forecast models are indicative of a bit of a battleground setting up near our area, as a gradient develops in the mid levels of the atmosphere. Such an event would likely mean more chances for precipitation, and temperatures running near normal for this time of year (with, of course, some fluctuations).

This week, showers will be around to start as an upper air trough lingers behind the strong storm system. It looks like high temperatures will warm up a bit as we approach Thursday, where they may spike into the mid/upper 60’s. But shortly thereafter, showers and a cold front will work back into the forecast, and bring cooler weather again for the weekend ahead. Pictured right: GFS model showing a “gradient” near our area later this week and this weekend. On the left, we see the mid-level heights in the atmosphere, and on the right, we can see the 6 hour precipitation and 850mb temperatures. Notice the temperature gradient near our area and precipitation near a warm front.
