Some Sunday cloudiness

Even though it’s currently foggy and overcast across the ‘Burg today (Sunday) is officially forecast by the National Weather Service to be partly sunny.  The fog will slowly erode away but a short wave trough crossing the Great Lakes region will keep a lot of high clouds around today.  Here’s an upper air forecast map for 10:00 a.m. this morning showing the short wave (inside the white circle):

(Contrast this short wave trough with the larger one – a long wave trough – that is about to pound the Pacific Northwest with yet another round of high winds, rain, and snow.)

Temperatures today should climb to near the 60 degree (F) mark as southerly winds kick in ahead of a weak surface cold front that will slide through tonight.  There is a small chance of showers from this front but if you’re looking for a drought buster you’ll be disappointed.

Monday morning will also likely contain fog so be careful during tomorrow’s commute to work.  The early part of this week will warm up to near the 70 degree level which is well above average for this time of year, but things will cool down behind a mid-week cold front.  Meanwhile enjoy your Sunday!
