TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Seasonable. Lo 32. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
MONDAY: Increasing Clouds. Light Wintry Mix After 7PM. Hi 53. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Stray AM Snow Showers, Windy. Hi 50. Winds: NW 10-20, Gusts up to 35 mph.
The stronger sun angle with mainly sunny skies made the middle to upper 50s feel much warmer, despite a persistent northwest wind. This evening features mild weather too with temperatures hovering near 50° just after sunset.
Temperatures drop tonight behind the front, with most of us heading toward the low 30s tomorrow morning. We’ll see increasing clouds throughout the day as the next front approaches. Tomorrow is dry though and features seasonably mild weather in the low 50s. The front will bring us some rain tomorrow night, and possibly wet snow and sleet for our northern communities. The exact track of the storm continues to shift south a bit, so it’s possible more of us see this end as wet snow, but with such marginal temperatures, little impacts to travel are expected until you head north of the viewing area. Again this is coming at night after a mild day, so overall lower impacts are favored despite the wintry precipitation.
Following this front, we’ll see clearing skies Tuesday and a strengthening breeze. Temperatures will be quite seasonable for most of the week with highs in the upper 40s and lows near 30. At the moment, that’s not good enough for any snow as a slow-moving system approaches the area next weekend. Overall this system should be unimpressive for our region, but it may help a stronger coastal storm develop to our northeast. It looks to be mainly some light rain locally for now, but we’ll let you know if that changes. Our window of winter to work with continues to shrink!
