These frigid conditions continue into the lunch hour, but with plenty of sunshine expected we should see highs in the upper 30’s. Clouds slowly return overnight, which should keep us from being as cold.
Our forecast gets a little active again through the middle of the week. As the high pressure mentioned above slides east, a bit of light drizzle is possible along the coast early tomorrow morning. Outside of that, breezy winds will kick up and clouds will return everywhere with a passing cold front that won’t produce any other precipitation. Southerly winds will kick up temperatures into the 40’s for the day as well. Heading into Thursday, a more potent system will be churning up from the Tennessee Valley. Given the track of this system staying south of us once again, we’re looking at the main precipitation type being snow as this system rolls in Thursday night.
While all signs are pointing to this not producing as much snowfall as compared to what we saw yesterday, this will certainly be plowable snow of at least a few inches. While we can’t dive into specific snowfall numbers just yet, prepare for a bit of a slower commute Friday morning. Everyone is fair game for some snow through the first half of the day, even those that didn’t see anything yesterday. Breezy conditions will then usher in another quick day of sunshine Saturday before a surge of warmth and some rainfall arrives across the area Sunday as a storm system tracks near the Great Lakes.
Stay warm out there and have a great Tuesday!
