Weekly Outlook: June 17-23, 2019

If you picked this week for your vacation, then you’re probably not going to be happy, unless you’re heading out of town. This week looks quite damp. It’s not going to rain constantly, but most days will feature at least a chance of rain.

A cold front that moved through early this morning will stall out south of the region and remain there for much of the week. High pressure will build in today, allowing some sunshine and mild temperatures to move in, but clouds may linger along the south coast.

For Tuesday through Friday, waves of low pressure will ride along the front, bringing the clouds back in along with periods of showers and a few thunderstorms. None of the days will be a complete washout, but some showers are possible at almost any time. The best chance for some steadier and heavier rain looks to be during the day on Tuesday and again Thursday night into early Friday.

By late Friday, low pressure pulls away from the region and takes the frontal boundary with it. High pressure builds in, giving us a nice weekend, with sunshine and warm temperatures. As we head into next week, we may finally get a taste of summer warmth, though that is far from definite at this point. However, there is one model that it showing some very warm to hot weather moving in by early next week and remaining in place for much of the week. We’ll obviously get into more detail on that, if it materializes, in next week’s outlook.

The GFS is indicating that temperatures next week could be 8-12 degrees above normal on average. High temperatures in late June should be near or just above 80, so you can do the math. Image provided by WeatherBell.
