Clouds Increasing, New System Arrives Tonight
Clouds will be increasing during the day as our next system approaches. Highs will be in the lower-40s with winds picking up during the afternoon. Low pressure arrives Friday evening with a round of rain and snow showers. We will see snow showers changing to all rain as temperatures rise into the 40s after midnight. Showers will become more scattered after midnight as well because this is a fast moving system. Winds will be gusty and exceed 30 to 40 mph at times. Snow accumulations will range from 1-3" with localized higher amounts on the hilltops. Rainfall amounts will be upwards of 1", which could lead to minor flooding. Gusty winds will remain Saturday with a few rain and snow showers possible. Our temperatures will start off in the 40s but drop through the 30s during the day. Colder conditions move into the region on Sunday with a few lake-enhanced snow showers possible. Highs will be in the upper-20s under partly sunny skies. Fair skies are sticking around for the first half of next week, along with highs in the low and mid-20s. Temperatures at night will be dropping into the single digits and teens, which is some of the coldest temperatures we have seen this Winter! We are expecting mostly dry conditions, but a system will pass by to our South on Tuesday with a few snow showers possible. Thursday, clouds will be on the increase with highs in the upper-20s.
