I am not sure I could describe today’s weather any better than this photo. I hope you got a chance to get outside today to enjoy the near perfect weather. A warm front will slowly approach the region tomorrow, which will bring slightly warmer temperatures but an increase in cloud cover and some scattered showers late.

Unsettled weather ahead? Two of our favorite teleconnection indexes are about to fall to values not commonly seen during the month of April. What exactly does that mean? Expect a rather transient and stormy weather pattern over the next few weeks.

Without going into too much atmospheric dynamics, the negative alignment of these two indexes may in fact “lock in” the unsettled weather pattern for an extended period of time.
