The wild winter weather continues today with a late season chance for snow. It won’t stick around for long and won’t impact travel which is always the best news. Today’s weather is caused by a surface low riding the base of a trough that will be sliding past us. The trough continues to deepen and later today will likely cut off enough to be considered a cut-off low.
Generally these late season cold spells are short lived and notoriously difficult to get a handle on if only using model data. Our forecast has seen numerous small changes
over the past 24 hours. The most significant change is timing on the back end of the system with things drying out by about 2pm today. Yesterday it looked like the rain would be moving out after 6pm so that is a notable change.
Due to the timing of the system now being a little faster it does look like we will actually see some warming this afternoon with highs just barely topping 40 degrees by sunset. The rest of the day we will be in the mid-30s. Expect the weather to remain cloudy through this afternoon and overnight hours. Warm front slides through Sunday morning and will bring warmer weather with it. Sunday highs will be in the mid to upper 50s. Monday’s highs will hit the upper 60s! There will be a late day chance for rain on Monday.
There will be a couple of chances for rain next week including Thursday where we could see a lot of rain and perhaps some street flooding. We will also have a chance for rain on Wednesday. Temperatures will remain in the mid-50s to mid-60s for highs over the next week. Enjoy your day and the snow!
