We have one more pleasant day to close out the weekend. Although skies will be mostly cloudy with some sunshine potential this morning, temperatures will be very mild with highs in the low to upper 40's. Winds will be lighter today, in from the south southwest at 5 to 10 mph.
A low pressure system is forecast to move right over us tonight, which makes for a diverse and complicated forecast. To the north and west is where we find the cool air with more likely snow chances and to the east and south is the warmer air with more rain or mix chances.
Starting tonight, our coolest temperatures may be in the evening with a slight increase in temperatures overnight, especially east and north. The low brings cloudy skies which will in turn deliver some light rain or drizzle for most. A wintry mix is possible NW in the coolest air.
Into Monday morning, the low remains on the east side of the viewing area, meaning temperatures continue to warm into the 40's east and south. A strong northwest wind will cool temperatures down throughout the day north and west. This is where the light snow chance will be the greatest. Rain or a wintry mix should be expected elsewhere.
Finally, in the afternoon the low moves east and temperatures start dropping for everyone with a strong northwest wind. Any rain turns to a mix or light snow as the precipitation moves east. It should exit in the evening.
Accumulations will be minor with up to an inch possible, but beware of slick roads for the Monday evening commute.
Again, here is the breakdown in a different format:
Temperatures remain mild to the east and south tonight, in the mid to upper 30's with low 30's west and north. Winds will be variable and light. Drizzle and light rain is most likely with fog possible as well.
By Monday, more organized rain and snow showers will move in. Temperatures continue to warm in the east and south to the low 40's but fall throughout the day in the west and north thanks to a strong northwest wind gusting to 35 mph. Light snow will be the main type of precipitation north and west with a mix turning to light snow in the afternoon elsewhere. Any accumulation will be minor with up to an inch possible in the north.
Winds will get strong once the low passes tomorrow.
The cold air takes over for Tuesday with highs in the teens. While skies begin to clear, a few flurries will be possible throughout the day.
Lows will be in the single digits Tuesday and Wednesday morning with highs in the teens for Wednesday as well. Wednesday will be partly cloudy but the rest of the week will be mostly cloudy with warmer temperatures returning. There will be a chance for light snow with breezy conditions both Thursday and Saturday.
