Our big weekend weather system is finally pushing away to the east this evening….and we are finally drying out…..other than a few flurries or snow showers which could linger overnight. However…we aren’t going to really start warming up or seeing much sunshine until about Tuesday….as it looks like we’ll hang onto mainly cloudy and cold conditions overnight and into tomorrow….though clouds may start to break up in some areas by late afternoon. It will become less breezy, though…as high pressure moves overhead. BTW with air temps dropping below freezing overnight.....any wet roadways....especially rural routes that may still be muddy or slushy....will likely re-freeze and could be quite icy.
By Tuesday we’ll start to get into a warmer pattern with southwest flow aloft and more sun…and highs will creep up into the 40s Tuesday and even into the 50s by the second half of the week. However….by Thursday a passing weather system gives us clouds and a chance of rain showers…and then by the end of the week a sharp arctic front arrives from the northwest. This will bring a quick shot of rain changing to snow Friday night into Saturday…and then a strong cold snap for next weekend. Right now snow amounts don’t look very impressive with this arctic front….but it will be blustery and cold on Saturday...then sunny and cold on Sunday. Still a long way away, so stay tuned for tweaks on timing and temperature. Thankfully it looks as though the arctic air should only hang around for a few days before temps start to moderate again.
