Forecast Discussion

These clouds will break up quickly, and it will turn into a very sunny day with highs approaching 60 degrees. It will be a bit breezy at times, which could keep a chill in the air, but this will be of very little impact compared to the chill on the way tomorrow into Wednesday.

After colder air begins to settle in tonight, another weak disturbance pushes in tonight, increasing cloud cover yet again. This time around, there will be a little bit of moisture with this system, and this precipitation will arrive very late tonight, likely around sunrise. It is looking like it will be just cold enough for a few mountain flakes, not enough for any sort of accumulation, but it will be the first snow of the season for some. For those along and east of I-81, plenty of clouds and isolated showers will be lingering around, but it won’t be cold enough for winter weather yet. Temperatures will freefall under clearing skies Tuesday night. A Freeze Watch has been issued along I-81 as the first freeze of the year could take place with the growing season still ongoing as temperatures fall below 32 degrees in many locations.

It’s going to remain relatively quiet and chilly the rest of the week, as a broad area of high pressure sprawls across the country at the surface while northwest flow continues aloft. High temperatures will settle in the 50’s, with lows in the 30’s but likely not cold enough for another hard freeze. A low pressure center will try and develop along the Atlantic Coast Thursday into Friday, but models have backed off on precipitation chances with this. Other than a few isolated showers on Friday, we’ll just see some clouds before sunshine returns in force over the weekend as we get set to turn those clocks back once again.

Have a great Monday everyone!
