The slow warm up begins today. You will notice stronger southerly winds, but that is a good thing as southerly winds help to push warmer air from the south into the region. This trend will continue the through Tuesday and because of that we’ll see increasingly warmer temperatures each day.
Overnight temperatures will follow that trend as wall. Assisting in the warmer overnight temperatures is the cloud cover which will reflect outbound warmth back to the surface keeping temperatures in the lower 20’s tomorrow night and in the mid to upper 30s on Monday night.
It’s the second chance, and its associated cold front we need to look out for. An upper level disturbance and associated cold front will make its appearance on Thursday, but it’s timing seems to be slowing down. I still think we’ll have above normal temperatures, but once the front moves through we’ll see decreasing temperatures with highs on Friday in the lower 30s.
Those colder temperatures on Friday, could bring a mix of weather for the region. We could see some rain, some sleet and some snow associated with it. This mix of precipitation will continue through Saturday and completely change over to limited snow flurries on Sunday.
Note, this is still 6 days out, and things can change between now and then. I’ll keep an eye on conditions and keep updating here on the website and our Facebook page.
