Breezy & Mild Today, Increasing Clouds Tuesday

Todd Simcox

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

A weak cold front crossing the state today will give northern areas the chance for a few snow showers this morning. Otherwise, the front moves through unnoticed. We’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies today with mild temperatures topping off in the mid-30s to mid-40s. Southwest winds will be gusty today with gusts to 30 MPH possible which will make things feel a bit cooler at times. High pressure will build into the area tonight giving us clear to partly cloudy skies and temperatures mainly in the 20s for nighttime lows.

 

High pressure will slide east of the region Tuesday, giving us a decent day. We’ll see morning sunshine fade behind increasing clouds as the day progresses. Temperatures will be mild Tuesday with highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s. Low pressure is forecast to pass to our north and west on Wednesday, keeping us on the milder side of the storm. Based on the latest track, it looks like the bulk of the precipitation will fall as rain. Northern areas could see some very light snow or mix Tuesday night in advance of an approaching warm front. As the warm front lifts northward through the state, milder air will take over on Wednesday allowing the precipitation to fall as plain rain. We’ll see periods of rain throughout the day Wednesday and into Wednesday night. Temperatures Wednesday will top off in the upper 40s to mid-50s for highs. The area of low pressure will pull a cold front across the state late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. Colder air moving in behind the front will allow the rain to end as some snow showers over northern locales before winding down Thursday morning. We’ll see brightening skies and drier weather through the day Thursday. Colder air will be in place with temperatures topping off in the 30s to around 40° for highs Thursday afternoon. Even colder weather is expected for Friday with temperatures in the 20s to around 30°. At this point, it looks like high pressure will build into the region Saturday and Sunday giving us a quiet weekend.
