Deceiving Cold Fronts
A cold front moved through today, but Friday will not be that much colder. A 2nd front will move through Friday evening, but Saturday will be unseasonably warm. A 3rd cold front moves through Saturday evening. This one is more normal, as Sunday will be much colder.
Why are the first 2 fronts acting so strange? They are moving so fast, that the cold air never gets a chance to settle in. As a matter of fact a strong warm front will pass Saturday morning. The fast moving fronts also do not have a chance to pick up much moisture. Hence, just a few light showers may accompany eah front. The image below shows today's and Friday's front. Notice, Friday's front is 1500 miles north of us. It will arrive tomorrow. This is a real fast mover.
