Occasional Snow, Mix & Rain Today, Sunshine Returns Tuesday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


Lots of clouds around for the remainder of our Monday. Precipitation will continue to gradually wind down as low pressure moves away from the state. Scattered snow showers are possible over northern areas while the rest of the state see occasional light mix and/or rain this afternoon. With high pressure positioned to our north and west and low pressure to our south and east, northerly winds will remain strong today averaging 15-25 MPH with higher gusts to 30-35 MPH possible. Temperatures won’t move much today with highs only topping off in the mid-30s to near 40°, a few degrees below average for this time of year. Low pressure will continue to pull away from the area tonight, taking all the precipitation with it and giving way to clearing skies late tonight as a ridge of high pressure begins to take over.


A ridge of high pressure will build into the state on Tuesday giving us sunshine and seasonable temps with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. A weakening cold front is forecast to move into the state on Wednesday and will likely give us just a few clouds during the afternoon but otherwise will come through dry. We’ll start with mostly sunny skies Wednesday morning then go to partly sunny during the afternoon as the cold front passes through. Temperatures will be right where they should be on Wednesday with highs in the low to mid-40s. A weak disturbance moving through on Thursday will give us a few clouds but otherwise we’ll see a pleasant day with sunshine and highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s. High pressure dominates Friday’s forecast with sunshine and highs mainly in the 40s. The next chance of storminess will move in this weekend with rain and mix possible Saturday.



Today: occasional snow and mix north, mix and rain elsewhere. Steadiest precipitation will fall over southern and coastal areas. Highs between 34°-39°. North wind 15-25 MPH with gusts to 30-35 MPH possible.


Tonight: lingering snow showers ending early then clearing late. Lows between 18°-25°. North wind 10-20 MPH.


Tuesday: few early clouds then mostly sunny. Highs between 37°-43°. North wind 10-20 MPH.


Wednesday: mostly sunny during the morning then becoming partly sunny during the afternoon. Highs between 40°-45°.


Thursday: mix of sun and clouds. Few snow showers possible north. Highs in the mid-30s to mid-40s.


Friday: mostly sunny with highs near 40° north, low to mid-40s elsewhere.
