Good day everyone!
Based on my analysis of Global models, and regional NAM model, temperatures will be modifying over portions of the Central U.S., especially over the Texas and the Central Plains states. Modeling reveals a pretty much stagnant pattern over the next 48 – 60 hours, with an Omega block centered over Texas. This is forecast to slowly move eastward during the next 72 hours. This type of high is labeled an “Omega Block”, as it resembles the shape of the Greek letter Omega, and blocks any “weather” from coming directly east. Instead, it forces weather northward on it’s west side in an up and over sort of motion.
So pretty much, Texas and the Central Plains can expect minimum and maximum temperatures to become somewhat warmer, while the east remains cold.
NWS Doppler radar indicates snow in portions of the NE and New England area. Snow currently falling on the southern portions, over PA / NJ area should begin to taper off late this evening, and should begin to move out of the area in early morning hours.
Rain should begin to move in over the Texas Panhandle, and portions of the Central Plains in about 72 – 78 hours from this mornings early model runs.
So far, there is no severe weather forecast over the next 5 – 7 days.
I have to work Fri. and Sat., so I will most likely not have another update until Monday.
Have a blessed weekend!
