Spring Temperature Swings Continue this Week
It's very common to get these types of changes during the week as the seasons change. The atmosphere is trying to still balance itself out. Coming out of the cold winter months, the warm air mass to the south is trying to retreat back north. The larger swings in temperatures across the U.S. is what causes those large low pressure systems to form. Since wind around low pressure flows counter-clockwise, southerly winds are drawn northward. However, there is still enough cold air that often times follows the passage of the low that drops temperatures back down a few days later.
