Good afternoon, everyone. Old Man Winter is poised to bring another round of light snow our way tonight and early Monday. This may drop some light accumulations across the northern half of the state. That kicks off a week that may very well end with temps pushing 80 and a severe weather threat.
Tonight’s snow zips in and out of town pretty quickly…
Light accumulations are a good bet for those getting under this fast-mover. Some of the Hi Res Models are showing 1″+ amounts…
Much of that will be on grass and elevated surfaces, but ground temps are a little colder following back to back hard freezes.
That action scoots away quickly on Monday, with a decent afternoon in store. After one more little dip on Tuesday, temps take off for the rest of the week. We hit the 70s by Thursday and Friday, ahead of a potent storm system rolling our way. This system continues to have a severe weather look to it…
Buckle up for a lot of those looks for the rest of spring.
Let’s get back to today and track the action in from the west and northwest…

Good Sunday, everyone. We have one more quick-hitting system to deal with tonight and early Monday, then we change it up a bit. The week ahead will start with some flakes and end with a surge of late May temps and the chance for severe storms. Sadly, that seems to perfectly sum up our run of extreme weather.
Today starts with record or near cold temps across much of the state. Highs this afternoon reach the upper 40s and low 50s for many, Clouds will increase ahead of a light precipitation maker tonight and early tomorrow.
A fast-moving band of light rain and light snow zips in and out of town. Some very light accumulations will be possible…
Monday afternoon actually looks pretty good with temps hitting the 50s. That’s ahead of another system moving in with a shower or two, bringing another temp drop for Tuesday.
Wednesday starts to bring us out of our cold weather funk. Highs will hit the 60s with mostly sunny skies and a strong southwesterly wind. Highs by Thursday race deep into the 70s and continue to warm into Friday. Highs may flirt with 80 degrees.
This is ahead of a setup that can bring severe weather our way. Look at the negative tilt showing up on this trough swinging into our region next weekend…
That’s certainly an attention getter and you can see how the models are spitting out some big thunderstorms…
Those kinds of systems will then roll across the country through the rest of the month. Big warm surges will battle with big cold surges and that usually says “watch out”.
I will have another update later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
