Latest Easter Weekend Forecast

April 3, 2012

Here you go, I’m glad we didn’t go real warm on yesterday’s 7 Day forecast based on the GFS:

Looks like the ECMWF yesterday was right on holding upper-level ridging and warmer weather mainly to our east later this weekend and early next week.  With offshore flow and sunshine, Saturday still looks nice, but Sunday is real iffy.  The 18z GFS has rain moving inland Sunday midday or so; the ECMWF not quite as aggressive, but definitely a lot of cloud cover.

No sign of a nice spell of warm weather…check out the GFS & ECMWF 850mb ensemble charts…

GFS:

ECMWF:

Both models are showing a shot of quite chilly air for mid-April (-5) around the 12th-13th, the latter part of NEXT week.
