Good Friday evening!  I hope you all had a fantastic week!  Mine was actually pretty good.  However, I am very ready for the weekend.  The weather is going to be nice and I would love to get outside and do a few things before the cold temperatures work in next week.  Lets look at this.  A strong cold front will work in late on Monday.

With this front, we will see scattered showers late Monday, Monday night and into Tuesday morning.  Then the much colder temperatures will arrive.  Look at our upper level map for next Tuesday.

The pattern is blocking up, this will allow arctic air to sink south and sit on us for a few weeks.  Check out my detailed long range forecast below.
