Front is well south allowing high pressure to build in. Winds relax and what clouds are around will clear leading to quickly falling temperatures from the middle teens to the single digits.
It will be a frigid morning with lows ranging from -2 to 2 above. With a light breeze, wind chills may dip to -5 to -10 at times. Plenty of sunshine to get the day started but clouds start to build back in later in the day. Highs will be running well below average in the low 20s. Winds will pick up out of the southeast around 5 to 10 mph.
We get a bump in temperatures midweek to the low 30s as our next clipper slides in. It may produce a few flurries but nothing more since there is not much moisture with it and most of the strongest dynamics will remain far to our north. What it will do is usher another blast of Arctic air for the rest of the week. Temperatures head back to the single digits with highs only in the low 20’s. High pressure will dominate our weather keeping us dry and even helping to steer a southern system away from us Thursday. Strong upper level energy provides another shot of cold air to start the weekend with lows in the single digits and highs in the upper 20s. By Sunday, in time for the first day of March, the upper level pattern shifts the trough more to the west a bit allowing for ridging and a milder flow. Temperatures will warm to the upper 30s for Sunday. There may be rain showers late in the day as our next system rolls in but models do not agree on timing. Showers and possibly a mix, depending on temperatures, will be possible for Monday. Highs could warm to the low 40s after morning lows in the upper 20s.
