How slow is it today? Slow enough to talk about the weather. Got this lovely item from the Channel 7 weather blog.
Bobby Powers had a low last night in Benton of 55.6 degrees. I think it's possible to do it again next week, maybe even cooler.
The models are coming together with a blast of cool air again Sunday into Monday of next week. Another strong area of Canadian high pressure looks to make a move south. The 12Z European model is jumping on the idea and so is the GFS. As a matter of fact, the GFS is showing a high next Monday of 83 and a low of 61. Since these numbers are in the long term, the model tries to trend towards climatology. This means there's a chance these numbers will be too warm. There's the chance we'll have highs in the 70s and lows well into the 50s. I don't want everyone to get the impression this is a done deal, but it's looking good at this point.
Bring on the 12Z and the GFS.
