Friday Morning Water Vapor Satellite Analysis

Written by on December 20, 2013 in NatGasWeather - No comments

It’s a very disorganized water vapor satellite image this morning as there are numerous diffuse features impacting the weather over the US. Much of thec entral and eastern US will see abundant cloud cover with several areas of precipitation setting up in different regions of the country.

 

1)  High pressure continues to shift into the eastern US, providing mild, above normal temperatures as well as abundant high clouds.

 

2)  A weak upper low is helping trigger some light rain showers over the central US out ahead of the cold front associated with the latest cold blast.

 

3)  A stronger and better organized low pressure system continues to track through the Southwest with valley rains and mountain snows.  This storm will really blossom as it enters the central US and taps into better moisture.

 

4)  Much colder air with a reinforcing shot out of Canada will sweep across the northern Plains and Midwest this weekend.  This is where the cold air for the Northeast early next week will originate from.

 

5)  High pressure begins to build back into the West coast for gradual warming over the coming days.
