An arctic coldfront is sweeping through the region, this is kicking off a few flurries as it ushers in some much colder air. Temps will bottom out tonight in the 20s for the first time in days. High pressure will slide over us tomorrow leading to a sun-filled day with light wind but temps will struggle to reach 40…a bit below normal.
For those sad to see the recent warmth leave, don’t be…milder air will once again return Friday and Saturday as temps shoot up again to around 50 on the backside of the high and out ahead of another coldfront. The front will kick off some rain showers Friday night and Saturday before it passes through so the weekend will start off on the wet side. The front will be south of the region on Sunday and therefore we’ll be on the colder side of it to finish up the weekend…temps will slide back a notch into the lower and mid 40s.
A more powerful storm system will approach Sunday night through Monday night. It is becoming more and more apparent that cold air associated with this system will be shallow and weak. Thus, the only frozen precip chance with this next system would be on the front end so there may be a brief icy mix Sunday night into early Monday morning. However, warmer air will win out with the low pressure center traveling to our west…strong, gusty southerly winds will spread in more warmth and temps should soar into the 50s by Monday afternoon. A strong coldfront will sweep through Monday evening with windswept showers and downpours followed by another cool down for the middle of next week.
