Despite the chance for some icy precipitation continuing into tomorrow morning, it will be so light there should be very minimal impacts. By Sunday afternoon, the atmosphere will have warmed up enough to where any of that limited light freezing drizzle will become light rain. Temperatures start out in the upper 20’s and warm to right near 40 tomorrow. The first few days of the week are starting to become much more clear in terms of the forecast moving forward thankfully.
A broad warm front connected to a low over the Midwest will start its path through the viewing area late Monday. We’ll stay mostly cloudy through the day as temperatures get into the upper 40’s. Plenty of warm air will be brought in before the front arrives Monday night. Almost all of the rain from this will be confined to the overnight hours, and will be fairly light. Other than a few showers lingering in the morning, Tuesday will be another mostly cloudy, warm day. A brief quiet stretch will then continue into Wednesday, with highs in the upper 30’s and lower 40’s and lows in the middle and upper 20’s.
The difficult part of the forecast has now shifted to the end of the week. Models are in agreement there will be a system bringing unsettled weather Thursday and Friday, but timing and precipitation type vary between models. As of now, here’s the most likely scenario that we’re looking at. Thursday will be a mix of light rain and a wintry mix with Friday warming back up enough to be all rain before drier and colder weather returns Saturday. Stay tuned for changes to this part of the forecast in the days to come.
