Growing season may end Saturday night

63062_10150092712394167_639419166_7189950_271146_n61238_10150092712909167_639419166_7189968_5594384_nLake Geneva, Wisconsin woke up to temperatures around 33° early Monday morning. A few clouds and higher dewpoints kept things in check everywhere else with morning temperatures in the 40s.

We’ll see a brief ridge of high pressure the next few days which has the potential of getting us into the middle 70s on Wednesday! The warmth won’t last long though as a huge dump of cold air is anticipated for the weekend. It won’t come with one, huge bang of a cold front (with wind). Instead, it’ll just gradually get really cold. The air will flow straight from the Northern reaches of Canada. Saturday’s high temperature may not get out of the middle 50s which will set us up for a potentially growing-season-ending frost/freeze Saturday night. -ES

    Eric, if this were middle of winter, would this yield possible below zero weather with this kind of jetstream configuration.
