It seems as though 2010 is the year of extremes, with record breaking temperatures last Friday and more possible Tuesday and Wednesday. A Bermuda high has set up, you guessed it, near Bermuda. Therefore southerly winds will continue and our temperature will stay very much above seasonal temperatures.
Without any upper level disturbances moving through the region Tuesday and Wednesday, we're not looking for any convection or shower activity. However, our next system will approach on Thursday, bringing a good chance of thunderstorms as the cold front crosses through. After several days of heat building in the area, along with moisture and enhanced lift coming with the front, some storms may reach severe limits.
Our temperatures return to seasonal levels this weekend with the 60's and sunshine on tap for the second weekend in April. Taking a peek into the 8-10 day period, we may be dealing with another surge of very warm air in the Valley.
