Waiting for our next storm system to develop over the next day or so to our south as the showers and little light snow from overnight wraps up this morning. The indications are we are on the warm side of this storm to start...meaning this will be a plain old air from Saturday night into Sunday. On midday Sunday, the wind will drastically shift northwest and the coldest air of the season will get wrapped into this storm...changing any precipitation to freezing rain and snow....and causing a flash freeze. Temperatures as we wake up on Monday morning will be on either side of 10 degrees, but wind chill values will be well below zero.
We get a small break for Monday and Tuesday with some sunshine...but an interesting setup appears for the middle of the workweek. We might have to deal with a real messy forecast heading from Wednesday through Thursday...but, let us take it one storm at a time...just wanted to put it on your radar that we are aware of the possible storm mid-week next week.
