We’ll continue with a wintry mix through the evening. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect until 7pm. Even once it expires, there will still be a concern for slick conditions. As colder air wraps around the departing low, we could see the mix change to light snow for a bit. Any precipitation this evening, including snow, will be minimal, spotty and on the light side. Temperatures will fall from the low 30s to the upper 20s.
We’ll start the day with clouds and fog. There may be a few flurries too. Lows will be in the mid to upper 20s so there is likely to be slipper areas early in the morning. Clouds will be slow to break up but by afternoon should see peaks of sunshine. Highs will only move to the mid 30s. Winds will be northerly around 5 to 10mph. High pressure builds in clearing the skies late and the upper level trough starts to lift out tomorrow night as a more zonal flow sets up for Wednesday. We’ll have colder temperatures heading into Wednesday morning where lows will drop to the upper teens.
Our next clipper swings in on Thursday bringing light snow to the area. Highs will only budge to the low 30s after morning lows in the mid 20s. The story, however, will be the bitterly cold air to follow Thursday night into Friday. It will persist into the weekend with another reinforcing shot of frigid air for the second half of the weekend. Valentine’s Day will be chilly and we could even see snow showers late afternoon into the evening. Highs for Saturday will only reach the mid 20s. It will be a great day to be indoors staying warm by a fireplace Sunday with highs expected to remain in the teens. Flow quickly flattens out for Monday so despite morning lows in the single digits, sunshine helps us warm to near 30 by afternoon.
