Good Monday, everyone. Temps are actually bordering on the normal side of the thermometer today. In a weather world gone mad, you know this won’t last very long. We have a small taste of winter in the days ahead, then we run the risk of record highs this weekend and early next week.
Highs today are generally in the 40s with a mix of sun and clouds. Ok, that’s enough of the normal part of the program.
Highs on Tuesday will hit the 50s as winds crank ahead of a strong system diving in from the northwest. This system will have a push of winter behind it, and tries to pick up a southern stream system. Odds continue to favor this as being “close but no cigar”…
Some snow showers and flurries can kick in for a bit, as winds become northwesterly.
The shot of cold behind that is in and out of town quickly, leaving the door wide open for a SERIOUS surge of spring. Highs by Friday will likely go deep into the 50s.
Weekend numbers can hit 70 or better and carry us into Monday…
With a deep trough working into the Mississippi Valley shortly thereafter, could a severe weather signal show up?
That’s a negative tilt showing up on that bad boy. If that look continues, expect more severe weather talk in the coming days.
I will update things later today. Make it a good one and take care.
