Looking likely that it’s gonna get warm next week, including more 80 degree days with another ridge flex, if we continue getting these ridge flexes into April then summer like temps would be possible, only issue is those troughs swinging through in SE Canada, so a CAD setup could pop up 1CBB9E70-C0F6-4DDD-80D0-DD1C147A7E75.png 615DDEA4-E875-4C97-8EF4-BEAF2C4CDF8A.png 5825CA73-7375-44DE-9E89-2847A3942392.png C5427C32-4316-4F28-8C0D-51D3D3122850.png

Today marks the 3rd consecutive day of 80*F+ temps.

The big difference between this year and the last 2 year is that we're finally see a normal spring transition (trees / flowers are gradually budding and blooming with roller coaster temps), versus trees in full bloom by mid/late February.

Looks like we’ve broken our streak of a cold March, maybe April can be AN aswell, altho that -NAO is still appearing in the LR, looks like that ridge flex next week will provide more borderline heat

GFS brings on a legit warmup next week, temps likely will be warmer than this to since the GFS Is often to low with temps so mid 80s to low 90s would be possible 8DC2BCF4-6E18-4467-BE72-009C865170DA.png 16A73284-83E4-45B2-A06A-520C6F742372.png 527B7D6D-933E-415A-8792-44E7E2BE161E.png D3FAACC7-5782-41EC-A260-4805930CF2F5.png

I think low-90s are a stretch, mid-80s might be possible though.
Only reason I say that is because with the past 2 warmups, the GFS was to low by 5-8 degrees, the gfs a few days ago showed temps that would be around 79 Degrees today, ended up touching 85 at my location, Hrrr often gets that BL mixing better which the GFS struggles with

What I don't want to see is this ridge really pump north and dry us out completely. When I was in Florida a few weeks ago it seemed really dry, granted, this is their dry period.

Call me an eternal optimist, but I don’t think coronavirus has a chance once this ridge tries to flex. I’m not sure the Chinese Flu knows what it’s up against. #SER
I hope you're right, because if we have to spend the summer stuck at home quarantined, and not able to do any summer activities, OUCH!

Going to be a little winter weather in the short term. Mtns in the 30s and advisories are now out for West Virginia. Not much and will turn to rain. Mostly north of the NC state line has a chance of mixing.
