From Snow and Cold to Rain and WarmthBy
The last of the snow showers and flurries were moving out late Saturday night and we’ll have clearing skies and falling temps heading into Sunday morning. Lows will fall through the teens.
It was a bitterly cold Saturday with a high of just 26. Our average high is 40.
After a very cold start, Sunday sunshine should help us climb out of the cold at least a bit. Afternoon highs in the upper 20s north and low to mid 30s south are expected.
Then a strong warm front pushes through early President’s Day Monday bringing with it wind, warmth and clouds. The clouds thicken through the day and rain moves in during the afternoon. There’s even the possibility of thunderstorms for the southern half of the state. Rain totals between 1/2″ to 1″ are possible, with the heaviest rain to the south. As temperatures tumble on Tuesday, we’ll watch any leftover moisture change from rain to snow. A coating to 1″ can’t be ruled out early Tuesday as a result. We’ll be dry Wednesday then watch a wintry mix for Thursday and Friday. For now, it’s possible we could be dealing with icy conditions – something to watch for the Thursday and Friday commutes.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
