A large and deep upper level trough of low pressure to the west of us will slowly edge toward the east toward through the period. This will initially maintain a southwesterly flow followed by cyclonic circulation which will bring several opportunities for showers and thunderstorms to the region. As of this writing the severe weather potential appears to be low with the main threat being locally heavy rain depending on where individual shower and thunderstorm cells pass. In addition, much below average temperatures are expected for most of the period.
