Light snow becomes a wintry mix and rain through the night
MIXED BAG OF PRECIP
Light snow continues to overspread the region ahead of a storm system. However, warmer air soon moves in aloft, so it won’t stay all snow through the night. During the evening, mixing with sleet, freezing rain, and rain takes place from south to north. Through the overnight period, a wintry mix/rain combination continues, with the most rain along the southern half of our region, and the most mixing to the north. It is all rain by 4 A.M., and then slowly tapers by 9 A.M. Monday morning. Temperatures peak in the middle 30s to near 40 degrees late during the morning, and then rapidly fall into the 20s during the afternoon. Some residual rain and snow showers are possible, with little to no additional accumulation expected. Winds turn very blustery throughout the day, leading to frigid wind chill values through the evening.
MORE FRIGID AIR AHEAD
Plenty more cold air is here to stay across the region through the rest of the week. After a start in the single digits on Tuesday, highs reach the lower to middle 20s under partly cloudy skies. The chance for some flurries comes again on Wednesday, with temperatures less cold in the lower to middle 30s. Then, it’s yet another burst of frigid air, knocking temperatures into the 20s on Thursday.
We’re slow to moderate leading into the upcoming weekend. Temperatures are in the 20s Friday, and near 30 degrees on Saturday. Friday brings plentiful sunshine, but a few snow showers are possible Saturday. Sunday, we’re watching the chance for more snow showers or light snow.
Have a great week!
