Discussion: Dry upper-level conditions and a high pressure system to our west will keep us free of precipitation over the next few days, but we will have overcast skies until clouds move out Wednesday morning. Sunshine will heat us up for Wednesday, bringing us closer to average for this time of year.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!)A high pressure system to our west will help keep us dry, but moisture hanging around near the surface will keep us overcast for the next couple of days. We are mostly dry above 800mb with no vertical motion in the atmosphere. We could see an isolated snow shower Tuesday morning due to this layer of moist air, but chances are slim given that its pretty weak. For the rest of this week we will stay just to the north of the upper-level jet and keep a northerly flow that will continue to contribute to our unseasonably cold temperatures. Cloud-cover and the lack of heating at the surface will help to contribute to those cold temperatures as well.
