Anyone else think this pattern has gotten old?

Overnight: Mostly Cloudy, Stray T-Shower

Lows: 60s | Wind: S 3-5 m.p.h.

Thursday: Partly Sunny, T-Showers Possible

Highs: Around 80 | Wind: SW 4-8 m.p.h.

Friday: Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cooler

Highs: Mid 70s | Wind: WSW 10-20+ m.p.h.

This narrative is starting to get old. It seems I have been writing the same daily discussion for the past couple weeks. Come to think of it… I have been. The general atmospheric pattern has changed little thus the seemingly endless string of mainly cloudy days with occasional showers and thunderstorms has continued day, after day, after day.

However, major changes are on the way. Upper level disturbances will continue isolated shower and thunderstorm chances through tonight. A strong cold front will approach the region tomorrow providing renewed shower and thunderstorm chances. By Friday, the leading edge of somewhat cooler and noticeably drier air will arrive accompanied by gusty northwesterly winds.

Over the weekend, the coolest air since last Spring will pour in to the region. Look for partly sunny, breezy and chilly weather on Saturday with the chance of a few showers as yet another upper level disturbance crosses the region. By Sunday, Canadian high pressure will settle into the area with a fair amount of sunshine and temperatures will struggle to top the 60 degree mark.
