The high pressure system that cleared skies out overnight will create clear and sunny skies for today. Temps will make it into the 30s with winds from the northwest at 5 – 10 mph.
The high moves out and low pressure builds back in on Tuesday. Temps will be milder though, with the southerly flow on the back side of the high. Temperatures will range from the upper 30s to the upper 40s with skies becoming mostly cloudy. Some light precipitation will develop overnight. Looks like most of this will fall in the form of snow. I’m not thinking much, if anything, in the way of accumulation due to the light nature of the snow and the much warmer ground. Temps will drop below freezing across the state overnight into Tuesday though, so some spots may get slick.
The low moves out Tuesday and skies clear during the day. Temps rebound into the low to mid 40s. Colder for Wednesday as an area of high pressure from Canada moves in. Temps will range from the upper 20s to mid 30s. It’ll be sunny Wednesday though. Some morning sun Thursday becomes clouds by the afternoon and them to some mixed precip overnight into Friday.
*The good news (well, good if you’re ready for spring): temps this week become rather seasonable. Our normal high for today is 44°. We’ll be pretty close much of the week. Forecasting precip is now becoming quite a challenge because we’re looking at where the rain/snow line would set up though the event. This is a good thing because we see the general warmer temperature trend finally happening. WOOHOO!
