The work week will start out just below seasonable temperatures. Highs will be in the upper 20s and low 30s with variably cloudy skies. Tonight into Tuesday morning we’ll see some light snow develop as a low pressure system moves into the area. Looks like total accumulation by Tuesday morning will be between one and three inches. Roads will become slick in time for the morning commute Tuesday.
Things warm up for some time on Tuesday after the passage of the warm front. Highs will be between five and ten degrees above normal. It’ll stay fairly mild for Wednesday as well with partly to mostly cloudy skies in the morning. Snow develops by Wednesday afternoon and spreads across the state. Snow will continue overnight and could be moderate to heavy at times. As of right now, it looks like there will be PLENTY of moisture with this storm, making the main question for forecasting the temperatures. (*This forecast is subject to, and will, change as more/newer data comes in.) The warmer the temperatures the less the snow totals since the snow becomes heavy and weighs itself down. The colder the temps, the lighter and fluffier the snow which will bring more in the way of inches. Of course there is always that pesky 32 degree line to worry about too. It looks like we definitely could see some mixing with rain during this storm, especially along the coast. Snow/mix/rain will continue into Thursday and wrap up by late afternoon/early evening.
Today: Highs 28° – 34° with variably cloudy skies and a few flurries. Light snow develops overnight.
Tuesday: Highs 38° – 44° with light snow winding down during the morning with partially clearing skies by afternoon.
Wednesday: Highs 34° – 40° with increasing clouds and snow/mix developing in the afternoon. Snow continues overnight.
Thursday: Highs 16° – 22° with snow/mix ending in the late afternoon.
Friday: Highs 24° – 31° with mostly sunny skies.
