Mostly clear skies as high pressure builds in. Winds will die down and become light to calm later. Temperatures will fall from the low 30s to the low 20s.
We are cold in the morning with lows in the teens but clear skies quickly cloud up as the next storm system pushes east. We are dry for the morning drive but high pressure slides to the east setting up a more southerly breeze.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY goes into effect tomorrow at 3pm for the area because of a wintry mix heading our way. Traveling is likely to become hazardous and slow for the evening commute. We could pick up an inch of snow and up to a .10" of an inch of ice.
Moisture from our next system streams in and we could see light snow develop as early as 1pm. Sleet will mix in as warmer air invades the upper levels while surface temperatures remain in the 20s for much of the day. Freezing rain will also be a concern heading into the late afternoon and evening. Eventually rain will mix in once surface temps warm above freezing but this could take much of the afternoon and evening.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Highs will be mainly in the 20s for a good part of the day but once we get into the evening they will start to climb from around 30 degrees.
Low pressure bringing in the wintry mix will pass by to our northwest keeping us on the milder side of the storm system so Wednesday will be a wet day with rain showers. Morning temperatures start in the 30s and climb to the middle 40s later in the day. As the front passes very late Wednesday, some models indicate a change back to a mix or snow briefly before ending. We dry out for Thursday and colder air filters back into the area with partly sunny skies. Plenty of sunshine but it will be old and dry for Friday with below average temperatures only warming to the 20s. By the weekend, we are looking at a dry one with highs near 40 on Saturday and more seasonal by the second half in the mid 40s.
SPRING AHEAD AN HOUR
This weekend we will get to spring ahead an hour as we return to Daylight Saving Time. Saturday night before you go to bed be sure to adjust your clocks ahead one hour. It is also a good time to check smoke alarms and CO Detectors.
