A Case of the Mondays

I'm tracking more cooler-than-average conditions in our forecast.

Good Evening,

For lack of a better term, Monday was a straight up Monday. In fact, Monday was the most Mondayish Monday we could have Mondayed; you know what I Monday? Whoa, what happened? Everything went dark for a second there, sorry about that. In all seriousness though, today’s conditions were absolutely dreadful. Between the afternoon highs of more than 30° below the day’s average, the winds whipping as high as 30 mph and the mid-April snow; Monday was your quintessential Monday.

Unfortunately, while temperatures throughout our extended forecast are expected to be warmer than today’s, afternoon highs aren’t forecasted to surpass or even match the average high for this time of the year until the beginning of next week!

Breezy northwesterly winds paired with an ample amount of cloud cover during the first half of our Tuesday will ensure that temperatures remain more than 15° below average. We will see some added sunshine during tomorrow afternoon, though it will be too little too late; we’ll only reach 48° tomorrow afternoon.

Strong southerly winds will return Wednesday afternoon and help to drive temperatures back into the upper 50s and even low 60s for many of us. The added warmth however, will come with a side of rainfall that afternoon and evening. Even worse, Thursday morning may bring about a few flurries as cool northerly winds ride southward on the back edge of the passing low early that morning.

After our dip in temperatures Thursday, a warming trend expected to last through the remainder of our extended forecast will take the wheel and gradually drive temperatures high each and every afternoon. Eventually we’ll crack our streak of sub-average temperatures early next week.
