Clouds thicken ahead of two rainy days

Top Stories

Cold air returns by mid-week...

TONIGHT: Increasing Clouds. Showers Likely by Morning Lo 36.

MONDAY: Periods of Rain, Especially During the Afternoon. Hi 53.

TUESDAY: Scattered Showers. Hi 55.

Clouds thicken up tonight as our next weather system develops over the Ohio Valley. An influx of warmth and moisture will mean milder air for Monday, but also the return of rain. Showers are possible as early as daybreak, with showers transitioning to a more steady rain at times during the afternoon. Tuesday will feature more scattered showers as a cold front passes through. Ahead of the front, highs both Monday and Tuesday will reach the 50s for a change!

Depending on how strong the wave is, an area of snow may develop on the back side of the front Tuesday night-early Wednesday morning. This may have implications for the morning commute, but right now significant snow is not expected given the expected warm ground temperatures. As of Sunday night the forecast models continue to favor this changeover to snow.

Skies clear Wednesday afternoon and temperatures fall well below normal. Lows in the teens are possible by Thursday morning as we get grazed by an Arctic air mass. Temperatures do trend upward by late week, but so do precipitation chances. The influx of warmer air should prevent major wintry concerns but with temperatures around freezing next Friday night, a light mix will be possible. We’ll continue monitoring.
