EARLY WEEK SNOW: Clouds slowly thicken Monday as our next system approaches from the northwest. It’s a weak system, with limited moisture, but a developing coastal system keeps snow chances alive through Tuesday. How they interact with each will determine snowfall totals, and that’s where the forecast challenges lie. Expect a few late day rain showers Monday, mixing with snow quickly during the evening hours. Monday night though Tuesday night, expect on-and-off batches of snow. The commutes Tuesday are expected to be affected for parts of the area depending on when and where any snow bands develop. There still is a fair amount of uncertainty despite being so close to the event, so expect potential changes. Highs are near 40 degrees Monday, and fall into the lower to middle 30s on Tuesday.
CLOUDS & COLD: Cold air settles in Wednesday, making for a cloudy day. Flurries are likely, especially the west and northwestern parts of the region. Highs are in the upper 20s to lower 30s Wednesday. A little more sun sneaks in Thursday, but skies are still fairly cloudy. Expect readings in the middle to upper 20s.
EVEN COLDER WEEKEND: A wave of energy moves through Friday and brings the chance for some snow showers. Temperatures begin to fall Friday, with readings in the middle 20s. The weekend brings some of the coldest air we’ve seen so far this season. Expect highs in the teens and lows in the single digits!
Have a great Monday!
