Another strong warm-up

After a nice cool week of low humidity, a warm area will move through the region. Both Sunday and Monday are expected to hit the 90F mark. Many areas have already issued a Ozone Action day for Monday. This warm up is due to a high pressure system moving further East of our area. As the high pressure systems spins clockwise, warm Gulf heat will move into the area. The warm heat can be expected to stick around until a cold front moves through Thursday. On Thusday some thunderstorms are possible with the passage of the front. At this time cannot pin point a exact time, but the front systems looks pretty impressive on the GFS.

Out in the Tropics, Hurricane Danielle continues to spin off to the northeast as it follows the jet stream. One interesting note while looking at the GFS is how it brings Hurricane Earl up to the extreme East Coast. The New England region better be on the look out for a possible landfall Friday. However, there is a reason why the National Hurricane Center puts out 3 day tracks, because they are very tricky to forecast. It is still something to keep an eye on as the model brings it right up to the coastline. Earl is expected to become a major hurricane(Category 3 or higher) by Tuesday as it strengthens in the Atlantic.
