Quiet Week Ahead

April 27, 2015: If you enjoyed today’s beautiful spring weather, you are in luck. We’ll have a large helping of the sunny and quiet weather for the rest of the week.

The jet stream will be in a ridge over the Midwest, leaving warm and tranquil weather in the Stateline.

The polar portion of the jet stream will be arching into a ridge steadily this week, drawing in warmer air from the south and keeping high pressure around to keep the weather quiet. This will help start a warming trend back to the 70’s by this weekend.

This new pattern is especially nice, considering the weather from last week. We usually are in the middle 60’s by mid- to late April; we were barely getting out of the 40’s some days last week. Most days this week will be between 10° and 20° warmer compared to their counterpart from last week.

The one downside to the tranquil weather this week is the lack of rain. If the lawn or gardens start to look dry, better get out the hose. Don’t expect Mother Nature to help out with the watering this week.
