Forecast Discussion

Be ready for a shock to the system for sure, but the wind has at least calmed down so we’re not dealing with a biting wind chill factor. It stays cloudy but quiet into tonight before the next storm system passes by well to our south.

Given the continued southerly track of this next storm system, as well as a major lack of available moisture, tonight into tomorrow isn’t looking all that terrible. We’ll still be close enough to the storm and cold enough for light rain/snow showers to fall through tomorrow morning, and this could cause some slick spots on the roadways so please take it slow and watch out. Other than that, though, we’ll only see a dusting of snowfall on the grassy spots, and that’s about it for this round of snow showers. By tomorrow afternoon we’ll be dry once again while staying chilly. High pressure gives us a little bit of sunshine on Thursday, one of the only times this week skies won’t be grey.

Our active pattern is to thank for all the clouds, as the third storm system of the week will be knocking on the door by Friday. This low will be tracking north of the area, which means a lot of warmer air will be pulled up from the south once again. A few spotty showers will be possible on Friday, but we’ll be getting warm again with temperatures into the 50’s. Saturday will be the most mild and soggiest day of the upcoming forecast, with 60’s and a decent dose of steady rain expected as a potent cold front rolls through. Rain showers linger around a bit on Sunday as well, so it won’t be the nicest weekend overall. We’ll be back to seasonably colder conditions with some sunshine by next Monday.

Have a great Tuesday and stay warm folks!
