WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Milder Pattern through Next Tuesday
Great Weekend for Winter Sports
An approaching cold front will allow the sunshine to fade away. We’ll see clouds move in from northwest to southeast during the late morning-midday. For the first time this month temperatures will peak in the 30s and will actually come close to hitting 40. The wind will be light from the south-southwest at 5-15 mph.
A light mix of rain and snow (mostly snow) will arrive this evening and continue through Saturday morning. Any snow will be very light with expected accumulation of an inch or less.
The light mix of mostly light snow will depart areas during the morning hours. it will be replaced by partly cloudy sky conditions from north to south. Temperatures for the weekend will be low to mid 30s Saturday and mid 30s on Sunday. Sunday should be partly-mostly sunny with a stiff west-southwest breeze. Don’t forget the time change this weekend. We “spring ahead” one hour at 2 am early Sunday morning.
EARLY NEXT WEEK:
We should reach the low 40s on Monday and upper 30s on Tuesday. Monday will be dry.
NEXT STORM SYSTEM Clouds will increase on Tuesday and a period of mixed precipitation or all snow is possible from Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. The weather computer models give varying solutions, with some taking the storm south of Michigan and others printing out some significant snow in the Tuesday night into early Wednesday time-period.
Regardless of the precipitation outcome, we do know that the storm will drag down yet another fresh batch of Arctic air for Wednesday into Thursday!
