The week ahead...

Jason Samenow @ 12:24 AM

Unfortunately, it appears that this week may be similar to last week in many respects as cool, marine flow is the dominant weather player.

Let's break it down--

Today: Cold air damming continues but abates. Cloudy in the morning with some breaks in the afternoon. For the first time in over 5 days, we crack 60 -- barely.

Tuesday: A mix of sun and clouds--winds become northwesterly allowing for a dryer air mass. The nicest day of the week, perhaps. Temperatures 65-70.

Wednesday: As a new area of high pressure builds in from the north and northwest, winds will shift to northerly and then northeasterly -- meaning cooler temperatures. It may take a day before the moist marine air socks the area in with clouds (on Thursday?). So expect partial sunshine with highs in the lows 60s.

Thursday: Cloudy with drizzle possible. Highs in the 50s.

Friday: A warm front approaches but it remains to be seen whether it will make it through the area. If it does, the sun may emerge making it warmer. If not, expect a day like Thursday (more likely, in my opinion).

Overnight lows generally 45-50 the entire week.

Admittedly, a lot of uncertainties with the forecast this week. The timing and strength of cold air damming events is poorly represented in the computer models we rely on. My forecast is on the pessimistic (cloudy/cool) side due to last week's experience when forecasts were consistently too warm.
