...the title says it all, because that's where we are. Smack dab in the center of a vertically stacked high pressure system. If there was ever a day we would NOT see storms despite a somewhat moist airmass it would be today!. I really hope "Ma Nature" proves me wrong today, I really do.
As expected, the high over the Western Atlantic has retrograded at the mid-upper levels and Florida is wearing it like a baseball cap. At the surface the ridge axis extends from the center located over the mid-Atlantic region down the US East Coast. So it's "High pressure, high pressure, everywhere you look". It's a totally different story as one heads west though into the Mississippi Valley and the Southern and Central Plains where severe weather abounds (lucky dogs). But we have one thing going for us, and I hope you'll agree, and that thing is 'warmth'!...Ahhhh. Western Nebraska and Southeast Wyoming are getting dumped on by snow...as is the Denver, Colorado area.
So when will things get fun around here? Good question. When you know, please fill me in because I don't see anything remotely "interesting" here in like..'forever'. Don't get me wrong, there might be some changes in store for us as we go into the weekend and early next week, but at this time those changes won't be in the 'active weather' category. Just maybe a slight cool down. Well, considering we have been near record high temperatures the past few days, that sort of change would be inevitable.
So for today, honestly I didn't pry very hard into looking for an excuse as to why it could rain today, despite what I'm hearing on The Weather Channel this morning (as I type)...I just don't see an excuse for ANYTHING today...(shrug)
