Forecast: A Sunny But Chilly Tuesday

Our weather here in the Northeast continues the flip-flop pattern. A few weeks ago, the colder-than-normal weather was associated with a big dip in the jet stream across the eastern half of the United States. Several cold fronts would move through and reinforce the Canadian Arctic air.

However, there's been a shift in the weather pattern. The jet stream is now driving southward across the western United States and nosing northward in the east. This has allowed a more southwesterly flow of air to bring clouds and milder weather to the Northeast, causing storms to track northwest of the area.
