There is a WIND ADVISORY in effect until 9am Monday.
Overnight lows tonight will be cold again, dropping into the single digits and low teens. Monday a high pressure ridge will keep the sky mostly sunny but highs will stay cold, still about ten degrees below normal. Winds will calm down as well. On Tuesday, one low pressure system will move to the north of the area and could bring some mountain snow showers. Besides that we’ll see partly cloudy skies. Highs will be much more seasonable, in the upper 30s and low 40s.
Wednesday is the day that you’ve probably been hearing about. It looks like it’ll be too warm for most of us to see much snow from the low pressure system that will move though. The models are starting to come into agreement that we will be getting something, however it is looking like it might be a mostly rain or mix event for us (only exception would be higher elevations). Temps will be in the 40s in most locations as the low moves in from the south. The placement of the low will bring us lots of moisture but keep us too warm for snow. If it shifts more to the east we could get some snow, but at this time, models seem to be agreeing that it will basically track right over the center of the state. Timing looks like it’ll start late Tuesday night (10pm-12am) as some snow showers or a mix then change to rain. It looks like the rain will be heavy at times, which is better than snow, but still not great for the busiest travel day of the year. It will continue right though the entire day on Wednesday, wrapping up about 24 hours after it started as possibly some more snow showers as the flow around the low will bring some colder air into the area. Another hazard with this storm will be the winds. They could be very gusty at times, similar to what we’ve been seeing today; again, not great for travel. We’re seeing lots of power outages today and they will again be expected on Wednesday so please be prepared.
By Thanksgiving day things settle down as another high pressure system move in. It’ll be mostly sunny but cold again with highs barely reaching 30. Friday will be the same. Doing any Black Friday shopping? Dress warm if you’ll be waiting outside! Overnight lows drop into the 4-14 degree range.
