This morning, a cold front extends northeastward from the northwest Caribbean Sea across Cuba and the Bahamas to the Atlantic and a low east of North Carolina. Ton the northeast, a cold front is moving south across New England from Canada with attached lows along the front over New Brunswick Province and Manitoba and high pressure over Quebec. Closer to home, high pressure is found over West Central Texas and also over Nebraska. To our west, a Pacific cold front is moving east from the Sierra Nevada's of California across Nevada to lows over eastern Oregon and southeastern Alberta Province.
At the Upper-Levels, we are seeing a slightly more amplified pattern with an upper-level low over Quebec with an associated low pressure trough digging south across New England to the central and southern Appalachians. Further west, another upper-level low is moving east across the east-central Plains with an associated trough dipping south into Louisiana and the northern Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile, to our west, a high pressure ridge has developed from Baja California northward across the Great Basin region to the northwest Rockies and western Canada. Finally, a deepening low pressure trough is seen found off the coasts of Canada and the western U.S..
Chill weather and sunny skies today will give way to gradually moderating temperatures by tomorrow. We will see increasing clouds and mild conditions by Wednesday and early Thursday as winds become southeasterly again ahead of the next front. We may see a chance of rain by late Wednesday into early Thursday as another cold front moves through the area late Thursday and early Friday with chilly, breezy, sunny conditions again for this weekend.
