Forecast Discussion

Unlike today, we actually have a shot at some sunshine tomorrow! After early morning clouds stick around for the start of the day, models are picking up on afternoon clearing as highs reach the middle 30's. This is almost a little tease, as the next storm is going to be arriving quickly on Monday night. There's still disagreements between the models on exact start and end times with the precipitation from this system, but a general trend is setting up. Late Monday night, in the early morning hours just before sunrise, snow showers will overspread the area. This snow will continue into the Tuesday morning commute, so the roads could get a little messy.

A wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain (mainly at higher elevations) mixes in through the morning with the snow, before everything slowly changes to all rain by the late morning for the valleys and the early afternoon for the higher elevations. Overall, accumulations of snow and ice will be very low, only an inch or two of snow and a glaze of ice. Rainfall wraps up Tuesday night, with lake effect snow showers kicking in for Wednesday.

Colder air shoots in for both Wednesday and Thursday, with clouds and chances for lake effect snow. Lows only drop to the teens and highs will be in the 20's, so not nearly as cold as this past week. Massive high pressure dries us out and warms us up straight through next weekend after that.
