So I am adjusting upwards, but the high will be during the evening and overnight not during the regular day.
- Cool Air Gets Stuck: The reason I held off on flip flopping the forecast over the weekend was because I was concerned that the cool air would get stuck in the lower levels with cold air damming. Well, now the models are showing that signature. And when it’s there, and the storm is west of the mountains, the cool air does not leave our area, until the cold front passes through.
- Lots of Moisture: Expect about 1-1.25” of precipitation. Our wet winter continues.
- Touch of Snow: On Tue, some precursor moisture will arrive with the very beginning being some snow. Elevations will help in any small accumulation. The valleys may get a coating and the higher terrain may get an 1".
- Touch of Ice: There may be some light freezing rain/drizzle Tue night, but due to our milder days and sunshine today, the roads should be fine as temps will be marginal anyway. The freezing rain may impact colder surfaces, like trees, grass, cars, signs, walks in shaded areas, etc.
- Colder Weather: A pretty strong shot of cold air looks to impact us next weekend. Although, I am hesitant about this. Last week at this time, it looked like the cool air we have now was going to be colder than it is, and I suspect the same will happen this weekend, with the coldest staying in southern Canada.
