HIGH AND DRY...

NOW MORE THAN EVER I NEED YOUR HELP WITH OPERATING EXPENSES

THE FUTURE OF THE SITE DEPENDS ON YOU. 

Hi everyone, as you know, TSwails.com is a no-pay site; existing on voluntary subscriptions or personal donations. If you find value in the site, I'm asking kindly that you make the donation you feel is worthy. I'm suggesting $20.00, roughly a nickel a day. Less than 5% of my readers donate, so your gift is not only appreciated, it helps immensely. Your contribution, whatever you can swing, supports the content, infrastructure, and operational costs. Thanks for anything you can do.


HIGH AND DRY...

A big 'ol ridge of high pressure will be in place in the upper levels of the atmosphere this week.

For some context, average high temperatures are in the low to mid 30s this time of year. Average low temperatures are in the upper teens to low 20s.

Temperatures will be running 10 to 20 degrees above normal throughout the week. Here's a look at the temperature trend for Cedar Rapids:

And for the Quad Cities:

With the ridge in place, the jet stream (storm track) will be to our north and not many organized storm systems will be coming through. This will lead to a quiet week and allow for temperatures to be similar or warmer each day. Little to no precipitation is expected over the course of the week:

At the end of the temperature graph there is a sign of change. There is a signal for a pattern flip that could lead to more active (potentially springy weather, in the form of storms) toward the end of the month:

The Climate Prediction Center corroborates this idea, showing a higher chance of above normal precipitation from February 26 to March 3:

A message from Terry:  P.S. With my recent health issues, I very much need to reach my fund-raising goals. To keep things as they are, I'm in humble need of your donation to the site more than ever. If you use it and find value in it, please consider a contribution. Thanks to you who have already helped the cause!
