Good Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.  I hope your week is going great so far.  Mine has been crazy busy so far this week.  We have gotten a few new toys at work that I am trying to quickly figure out.  Also, we have had changes with the weather the past two days.  A cold front rolled through the area that has greatly dropped our temperatures, plus we have had some showers which we could use.  Showers will pick up again in the early morning hours.

I do think any showers will dissipate during the afternoon hours.  Then we look great for the next few days.  Lets jump into early next week.

We are looking at the Jet Stream level, but I put on the surface front for you.  We will warm up as we are under a ridge, but with a front hanging around, we will have at least a slight chance for pop up showers all most each day next week.

NEW HEADY PATTERN

The new cycle has been cycling for a couple of months now.  You can still see signs of the old cycle and pattern but are quickly dissipating as the new pattern has now begun.  It will be completely set around October 10th.  So lets jump down the road about a week and a half.

Due to the storm system to our west, we will be warm ahead of it.  However, this should be a decently wet system here in about two weeks.  However, this shows great evidence of the new pattern as this type of system digging deep in the SW in a newer trend.  So here we go.  I have the new cycle pretty much to a T.  However, I want to see how it reacts with the new pattern over the next month.  I will keep you updated.  Remember, my long range forecast is below.
