I have great news for you all of you tired of the cold temperatures. The pattern looks to switch nicely toward the weekend, and that means much needed warmth.
A nice ridge of high pressure will settle over the plains this weekend. High pressure over the Rockies means sinking air, and that sinking air warms up rapidly.
Temperatures on Saturday will soar into the 70′s under a lot of sunshine. Sunday could be the warmest day of the week with highs in the 80′s.
More clouds will roll in from the Gulf Saturday night into Sunday morning; however, those clouds will likely break up during the course of the day. With a partly cloudy sky and 16 to 18 degree celsius at 850 mb, we’re expecting temperatures to warm 15 to 20 degrees above average.
