Some places looked like this last Wed. If you were on the higher elevations this is what you got. But in the valleys ... another story. Very wet snow. Great for snowman making!
This week will NOT feature a snowstorm like last weeks. But we will get some winter weather: Snow, sleet, maybe some freezing rain (not much if we do) and cold rain. A little bit of everything for everybody. The one item we will not have a lot of? Sunshine. It will be pretty cloudy this week. With out further ado here is the forecast:
High: Low: Weather Details
Monday Night: 30 Much colder. Mostly cloudy.
Tuesday 34 30 Cold. Light snow arriving in the morning, becoming sleet before all rain
By 4 pm. Accumulations will be tough. Temps around 32 will make for about 1” in the valleys and perhaps up to 2-3” on the ridge tops.
Wednesday 43 30 Mostly cloudy and chilly. Light rain showers possible early.
Thursday 38 28 Sunny for the most part with clouds appearing late in day and at night.
Friday 35 34 Light Snow/ice/rain arriving late. Tricky forecast. More
details to come.
Saturday 38 32 Possible rain showers around. Lots of clouds. Cold and
Sunday 40 30 Sun and clouds. Seasonally chilly weather.
1. Week will be marked by weak storms with limited moisture, and big strong areas of high pressure to our north.
2. Week will end up cooler than average, with Mon being the warmest day for this week.
3. Week will have more clouds than sunshine, unfortunately.
4. Cold front passes through Mon with a shower possible. Much colder again at night.
5. Cold front stall to our south, with moisture lingering along it. Front tries to move north into our area Tue-Tue night. Moisture looks somewhat limited, but enough for small accumulation of snow, before turning to some freezing rain (very limited due to temps being around 32) and rain in the evening.
6. High pressure moves in for Wed night and Thu giving us a nice but cold 24-36 hours.
7. Slightly stronger and wetter system tries to push just to our north on Friday-Saturday. This event will also feature the potential for a mix of precipitation. Nothing too significant, just typical early winter weather.
