After another day and night of activity yesterday – in which many unfortunately lost their lives due to inclement weather – a stream of storms continued eastward against a frigid front.
Portions of the line sometimes become severe, and the threat will linger for hours overnight as it moves eastward into an air mass. feels a bit more like summer now than early spring. A marginal threat will exist to the Mid-Atlantic tomorrow before the system finally leaves our shores.
Three weeks in a row with serious death threats left us all exhausted and wondering, “Are we going to get some rest soon?” The answer, in a word, is yes.
After our current system exits to the east, the model guide suggests building a solid ledge first into the west, then quickly moving east. Some drought may persist in the Southeast US via subtropical jet as a split flow should materialize early next week, but it doesn’t look like it poses a serious threat at this point.
With the exception of the Southeast (due to the aforementioned developing southerly gully), areas east of the Rockies look much drier than average as ridges dominate next week.
After a short period of time after the upcoming cold front, temperatures will rise under the slopes of buildings.
Ridging remains firmly in place while the trough is kept west until the next business week. We can safely say that, as long as there are no major changes to the forecast model, the likelihood of severe weather (over the next 7 days) in areas that have been repeatedly impacted The impact in the previous weeks seems to be very low. Recovery can begin and continue without fear of the next threat, at least in the medium term.
