long range web other
The long range weather pattern appears to be somewhat quiet and very uncertain, as far as precipitation, so I focused on temperatures building out west. Finally, it appears a "spring-like" ridge will begin to build over the central planes by the end of the long range. This image below shows two 1000-500 heights by next Saturday. Underneath this ridge, the temperatures are the highest seen in quite some time for these areas and the ridge appears to be progressing eastward. Therefore, I believe by the beginning of next week (April 8th) we will begin to see well above average temperatures over the midwest and great lakes regions, that have been stuck in below average temperatures for weeks now.
