A massive two-day warm-up is underway thanks to a dome of high pressure shifting eastward from the toasty Midwest. High temps will rise into the 40s to near 50 Friday and Saturday. Still, for all the pattern shifts, the atmosphere is starkly lacking moisture and will continue to stay dry for the time being.
Temperatures will remain a few degrees warmer than normal throughout next week, as a stable jet stream pattern constrains the atmosphere’s ability to get anything interesting going. The next storm on the horizon looks to arrive towards the end of next week, but any associated precipitation should fall entirely as rain.
