Seasonably mild end to weekend, potential record cold looms for mid-week

Forecast

Rain/snow showers Tuesday morning...

TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Not As Cool. Lo 40.

MONDAY: Increasing Clouds, Mild. Hi 59.

TUESDAY: AM Rain/Snow Showers, PM Colder and Windy. Hi 40.

Milder air kept our temperatures in the lower to mid-50s today, a much more pleasant November to end our weekend! Tonight we expect some passing clouds, but dry and quiet conditions leading into Veterans Day.

Tomorrow remains dry too during the daytime hours. Moisture and thicker clouds will begin to sneak in later by evening. All-in-all in Veterans day will be dry and much warmer than the weather to follow for mid-week.

A powerful cold front will cross the mid-state late Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Ahead of it, some rain showers will develop, ending as snow showers for the morning commute Tuesday. At this point, it appears the moisture won’t stick around much following the cold air. Therefore, we’re not expecting accumulating snow but given the timing, we’ll continue to monitor for any commute impacts. The bigger weather story Tuesday will be the blast of cold air that follows. Highs will struggle to get back to 40 as winds pick up, gusting to 30 mph Tuesday afternoon. By Tuesday night, temperatures area-wide will fall to near 20, with wind chills possibly in the single digits for some spots early Wednesday morning. We may break some records, so get ready for it! Highs Wednesday won’t make it out of the 30s!

We begin somewhat of a milder trend by the end of the week with highs recovering into the 40s. Some guidance indicates a weak clipper system may cross Thursday, but with a lack of moisture and overall agreement in the models, we’ve kept Thursday dry for now. The dry but still chilly air looks to continue into next weekend.
