I'm a CMU Honors student and love meteorology and extreme weather. I've been fascinated by weather since I was 5, and plan on becoming a meteorologist

A warm several days is in store for the Berkley area. A warm front will be lifting through providing warm temps combined with a ridge. This weather system will provide periods of rain and storms until the cold front passes. Those storms won't be severe as there won't be enough instability and shear. A drier and cooler period will be in store after that. There are chances for rain and snow showers late in the forecast period and beyond. The GFS and ECMWF models have been even showing several inches of snow for the area in 7-8 days. Right now it is too far out and inconsistent to put much stock into it but it needs to be watched. It is a fall pattern setting up for the Berkley area.
