(reminder/disclaimer: forecast accuracy drops rapidly over time, beyond 4-5 days any prediction is more of a "trend" than a forecast. As new data arrives [4 new computer model runs/day] the forecast will most definitely change. A strong spring jet stream means rapid weather changes, which makes a long-range trend even more challenging). This forecast is experimental, underscoring the limitations of meteorology.)
