April Showers

The 6-10 day outlook is definitely not one that seems to encourage outdoor activities. As it appears right now, a large portion of the country, notably almost all of it east of the Rockies, looks to see above average precipitation. There projects to be a slow moving trough over the center of the country, with a southwest to northeast jet running from Texas to the Great Lakes for several days. Model guidance suggests several systems following this path  from the middle of next week into the weekend, with the rainy core of these features following the brightest highlight on the map.

This is going to be a sloppy week for a lot of the country. With that trough continually reinforced next week, it looks to be rather chilly in the Plains, but unusually warm along the east coast. This clash could lead to a dicey situation in the Ohio and Tennessee Valley. Stay tuned!
