Mild through Sunday, then another snow chance

It’s another mild day on Super Bowl Sunday, with temperatures rising into the 40s again.



The mild treat looks to continue through the rest of the weekend before conditions turn more wintry again late Sunday night.  In the meantime, tonight skies are partly to mostly cloudy as a cold front slowly drifts east.  Lows are in the lower to middle 30s.  Sunday morning remains dry, with mostly cloudy skies for any last minute Super Bowl errands.  Temperatures rise into the 40s again during the afternoon.  By afternoon, a few showers are likely.  The shower chance continues into the evening.





The next system passes to our south, leaving the best chance for heavier accumulations near the state border.

An area of low pressure developing in the Deep South along the tail end of the cold front looks to bring a wintry mess late Sunday night through Monday morning.  Scattered rain showers overnight Sunday begin to mix with sleet overnight.  By daybreak, it changes to snow, with perhaps some of the mixing remaining along the southeastern parts of the area.  The snow is heavy at times through the morning, and wraps up from west to east during the afternoon hours.  Accumulations look to be heaviest along the south and eastern parts of the area, especially near the state border because the system passes to our south.  See the map for accumulations in your area.  These could change depending on how the models sort out the mixing scenario over the next 24 hours.




Tuesday we get a break from the action, with temperatures in the 30s.  Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, yet another storm system heads this way, but early indications say we’re mainly on the warm side for this one.  This means Tuesday night into early Wednesday, it’s a snow/sleet mix before a changeover to rain throughout the day Wednesday.  Thursday and Friday, we get another break, but temperatures return into the 20s and lower 30s.  Yet another storm system is possible on Saturday, and for now, it looks like this one brings another bag of mixed precipitation.



Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
