Discussion

High pressure off the northeast US coast will be stay put for the next couple of days and clockwise winds around this system will generate a moist flow of air for the region right off the Atlantic Ocean. Also, residual moisture from the Ohio Valley has moved northeast into the region and the combination of the moist air flowing in from our east and the moist air coming here from the southwest will put an atmospheric squeeze play on the region generating lots of clouds and occasional showers for much of the first part of the week. By the second half of the week, enough drier air should move in to allow for some sunshine each day and that will allow temperatures to climb to seasonal levels by the end of the week (normal high is now 71 degrees). Elsewhere, yet another cold shot is headed for the southern Rockies, Northern Plains and Upper Midwest this week. Denver could reach 80 degrees today and then have accumulating snow on Wednesday.
