Turning a Bit Cooler
Good evening.. we are watching an area of low pressure to our north. This system will drag a cold front across the region late tonight into tomorrow. It could produce a few flurries or light snow showers across our far northern communities late tonight. The rest of the area will see a mostly cloudy sky with lows mainly in the 20s.
The front will be south of the area tomorrow. As a result, look for colder air to briefly sweep across the region. Afternoon highs will fall back into the 30s.. The good news is we should see some sunshine. By tomorrow night, we’ll really feel that colder air as lows drop into the single digits above and below zero.
As we head into Wednesday, look for a cool day as highs only manage the lower to middle 20s. These readings are actually near normal for this time of years. We’ll start the day with sunshine, but clouds will start to increase through the afternoon. The clouds are ahead of another disturbance that will track across the area Thursday.
Looking ahead… that next area of low pressure will move across the region Thursday. It will bring another slug of warmer air with it, so expect highs to return to well above average. This system will also bring a chance of a wintry mix Thursday morning. The mix will change to rain as warmer air arrives by Thursday afternoon.
After that, expect a more seasonable and active period. we’ll see at least slight chances of rain and snow through the end of the week into the first half of the weekend. After a dry day Sunday, we’ll see another chance of rain and snow return for next Monday. None of these systems look to be big precip producers. Temperatures through the period will range from the middle 20s to middle 30s, which is near to slightly above average for this time of year.
