It’s about time! Spring weather arrives this weekend

Ready for spring? A cold few days with intermittent periods of rain showers will transition to a much more spring-like pattern beginning tomorrow.  The graph below shows various weather parameters for the next 7 days from the overnight run of the GFS computer model.  Click the image to enlarge it.

The first thing to notice is the top red line which begins climbing tomorrow with the “peaks” getting higher (warmer afternoons) and the dips also getting higher (overnight lows much milder). In fact, our first 80 degree day of 2013 could be early next week!

The arrows at the bottom represent the direction the wind is blowing (towards, not from) showing a wind shift from north to south on Friday night and remaining from the south well into next week.

This major pattern shift will set the stage for possible severe weather by the middle of next week. MWN will keep you updated on the latest information as we get closer to that timeframe.  In the meantime, you may want to check out StormWatch+ in the MWN app.  There is no better way to get customized severe weather alerts for the locations YOU care about than smartphone technology.
