I'm sure most of our followers know by now that quite the rare winter weather event is setting up for a good portion of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. It is fairly frustrating to be north of where the wintry action is taking place, so lets breakdown why that is.
|18z GFS 250 mb (jet stream level) heights and wind speeds for Tuesday morning|
|18z GFS atmospheric sounding valid for Tuesday evening|
|18z GFS valid for midday Tuesday showing 2-meter temperatures|
To break it all down in terms of a temperature forecast, expect a 10 degree rise in high temperatures each day. Mid 20's tomorrow, 30's Wednesday, 40's Thursday and 50's Friday. Of course the mornings will still be rather chilly (especially tomorrow and Wednesday with temps in the lower teens). Get full details on the forecast from MWN by clicking here.
