Sunny and Mild
2015-04-13 06:28:12.000 – Ryan Knapp, Weather Observer/Staff Meteorologist
If one had to summarize Monday in three words it would be “sunny and mild.” While these three words will be departing our vocabulary a bit Monday night into Tuesday, they will be returning to the region for the midweek. High pressure, which will be providing the fair weather on Monday, will be sliding offshore heading into Monday night as a low approaches to our northwest. As the low passes to our north, it will be dragging a trailing weak cold front with it, which will approach from the west. As this front passes, it will bring some light rain showers to the lower elevations Monday night into Tuesday. For higher elevations, rain will be seen at the start, however some peaks may see a wintry mix on Tuesday as a secondary cold front swings through. As the front exits, high pressure will be rebuilding from the west for Wednesday and Thursday bringing a return of spring-like conditions and those three magical words – sunny and mild. Looking further ahead though, unsettled weather will then be returning as we head into the weekend.
The view at the start of the sunny and mild Monday.
Monday – High pressure exiting and a cold front approaching from the west.
Tuesday – A cold front and associated rain showers sweep through the East.
Wednesday – High pressure returns and with it, sunny and mild conditions.
