Unseasonably cool air returns
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 12:20:40 GMT —
Another stretch of unseasonably cool weather kicks in Monday behind that dynamic cold front that roared through with the severe storms on Sunday.
Highs Monday, with wind, will be more than 10 degrees below what is typical for the end of July. The chill sticks around through at least the first weekend of August!
The upper level flow of the Jet Stream again takes on a pattern typically seen during the winter months to round out was has been a cool month of July. Skies will be partly sunny Monday with highs only getting into the low and mid 70's. It will get windy too with northwesterlies gusting to 25 mph this afternoon. It's likely we will see a few spotty showers this afternoon.
I'd like to say things get better in the days ahead but they won't as another stubborn upper level trough spins overhead and continues to push air out of central Canada and into the Great Lakes region. This pattern sticks for at least the next week and the forecast doesn't change much through at least early next week. Into the weekend we'll see partly sunny days where we'll be quiet and dry during the morning hours, see skies cloud up during the afternoon as highs climb into the mid and upper 70's, generating isolated afternoon showers. So if you need to get after some outdoor chores this week/upcoming weekend plan to get after it during the morning hours.
Our medium range forecast models go out about ten to twelve days and are not offering much of an indication we'll be seeing summer / August heat any time soon.
