DRY WEATHER CONTINUES AND THERE WILL BE A SLOW WARMING TREND… WET WEATHER SEEMS MORE AND MORE LIKELY FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK

As my headline stated yesterday (Friday), high pressure is guaranteeing great weather this weekend. Temperatures will be absolutely perfect for most of us and will trend upwards a bit as we head towards Monday. This is a rather large high pressure system and will be very slow to move away. South of this high, low pressure is eventually going to develop (probably near the Florida coastline) and this system combined with the return flow of moisture around the high, may bring us some wet weather by the middle of next week. Forecasters aren’t certain as to how much rain we will receive. I checked the Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts at the HPC site and they show that an area just east of the state of Florida may receive a lot of rainfall during this upcoming week. It will be interesting to see how far north this system is able to spread its moisture. I saw a report on the Weather Channel yesterday that there is also concern of the low pressure system becoming tropical in nature. That sometimes happens when you have large high pressure systems centered over the Northeast at this time of year. So, enjoy the beautiful weekend…. The only storm in the tropical Atlantic is Tropical Storm Philippe, which weakened since yesterday. The storm is moving E-NE rapidly out into the central North Atlantic. That’s it for now. Have a great day.
