Cool stretch to continue for at least a week!

I joked on my Facebook page this weekend if everyone was enjoying the first weekend of October! Shorts and short-sleeves were replaced by sweaters and jeans with temperatures some 20 degrees below normal.

1Since everyone (including myself) is wondering when the warmth will return, I decided to look well beyond the 7 Day Forecast range. Turns out, the cooler weather will be locked in with the jetstream diving to our south for the better part of 10 days. It’s not until the middle of next week that the models are returning us to a warmer weather pattern. In this graphic, you can visualize where the jet will reside: from Montana down to the Tennessee/Kentucky area.

The Great Lakes States will have a higher-than-normal chance of seeing cool weather with Texas, the Desert Southwest, and the Pacific Northwest remaining warmer than normal.

2Looking at our precipitation for the year…we’re doing okay. However, we’ve seen quite a dry stretch over the past few weeks. Unfortunately, if you’ve got a garden, things don’t look that great. With the jet diving to our southwest, it will keep the Gulf of Mexico locked up. We have a higher-than-normal chance of remaining dry through the next ten days! -Eric
