Snow Comes to an End, Bitter Cold this Morning

Weather

Wind chill is our main issue heading into the afternoon, the wind is making it feel like the 20s out there versus the 30s that it really is as breezy conditions wind down. Keep that jacket and gloves on hand as you get ready to leave the office.

The remainder of the upslope snows come to an end over the mountains as high pressure begins to move in and take control of the region today. Highs won’t recover much by this afternoon as many will still be in the upper 30s and low 40s. Although this is still below average, at least most will be back above freezing!

Tonight, anything that melted during the day time will refreeze meaning slick spots will be an issue again heading into Thursday. Overall the night is rather quiet except for the freeze, most dip into the 20s for lows and we see the winds finally let up across the region.

Thursday looks to fully dry out as high pressure meanders in behind our storm system. Highs will begin to moderate into the 40s and low 50s, falling near average. Clouds will take some time to fade out of the picture, but should move out by the afternoon as high pressure takes over briefly.

Friday some evening rain is growing in likelihood but most of the day is looking dry but cloudy. Daytime highs still not seeing much improvement as many sit into the 40s. Some mixing overnight into Saturday remains a possibility particularly over the mountains where the best chance for a changeover to some snow showers exists. Lows will be in the 30s for most, with the higher elevations possibly into the upper 20s.

Outside of some lingering rain/snow showers on Saturday morning the day is looking pretty nice. Clouds look likely to stick around but many should be able to make it into the 40s as our exiting low pressure gives one last push of warmer air before dropping us back to the 20s overnight.

Sunday looks to be on the chillier side for now falling below average with highs in the 30s and low 40s. Clouds look like they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon either at this point in the forecast.

Monday and Tuesday of next week look to be very similar to Sunday. A cool and dreary start to the work week as clouds remain blanketed over the area. High pressure is more or less in control at this point and for now we’re keeping dry weather in the forecast.

The extended forecast is quite changeable over the next few days as our models can’t seem to agree on much with what is going with temperatures and the possibility of another weak system gliding by. As of this morning, the forecast is dry until we can grab onto some more concrete evidence of some rain or snow!
