Pleasant Monday, followed by rain arriving Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

After a drier second half of the weekend (short of a few lake effect flurries across the northwest), our brief, but pleasant stretch of weather will continue into the start of the workweek. Expect the breeze to trail off a bit overnight, with lows dipping back below freezing and into the mid to upper 20s.

Mainly sunny skies will welcome you on the always-tough commute into work Monday morning. Look for a beautiful day with highs reaching into the middle 40s under just a few passing clouds.

All good things must come to an end, and that appears to be the case for Tuesday. A developing system out in the Midwest will deliver more stormy weather for the Midstate by the end of the day Tuesday. The storm is trending slower, meaning we'll likely see things get going in the afternoon and evening hours Tuesday, and it may begin as a brief period of freezing rain, sleet, or a few snow flakes.

With the later start time of this storm pushing the onset of precipitation to the afternoon hours of Tuesday, our atmosphere will have a few extra hours to warm, and therefore the wintry threat seems to be getting less and less. Still, the potential does exist for a few slick spots, before everything transitions over to rain Tuesday night.

Expect temperatures to warm into early Wednesday, with readings touching 50 in a few spots, before cooler air, and even a few flurries arrive by day's end, along with tumbling temperatures. We remain seasonally chilly for the latter half of the week.
