The thoughts and forecast we put out was pretty darn good. What made it even better is this storm was being talked about as a possibility about a week ago. Since this storm was behaving itself, I didn’t feel the need to update anything. That, and the fact that I have a few days off work to relax.
This storm made it 3 winter storm impacts across the state this week. That’s not a bad way for winter to come roaring back just days after record highs.
That roar kicks into high gear later this weekend into next week as the arctic express rolls into town. The first front arrives early Sunday and may bring a few flurries or snow showers. Temps will come way down from the Saturday readings.
The next shot arrives on Monday as a clipper dives across the region. This should have a swath of light snow with it…
Check out the air that comes in behind that system…
That could produce single digit lows and teens for highs. Throw gusty winds into the mix and you may have sub zero wind chill readings.
The upper air pattern next week will continue to feature a big trough across the eastern half of the country. Hard to time systems will continue to dive in from the northwest and one those will try to amplify by the middle and end of the week..
