Discussion


A cold air wedge begins to erode overnight. A warm front surges North and allow temps to rise into the low 70's Wednesday. Another stronger cold front will cross the area on Thursday. Periods of heavy rain are likely, even a possible lightning strike or two. Dry air filters in for the late week into next weekend.



WEDNESDAY


Temps soar ahead of the next Arctic front and many areas will approach 70 degrees. A few showers but a few peaks of sun as well. The more sun the warmer temps will climb.



THURSDAY


Showers and thunderstorms early with heavy showers and maybe a storm during the early afternoon. Behind the front and storms temps drop rapidly. Rain may mix with snow just before ending West of Hwy 18/64 corridor. Largely though, the precipitation will outrun the cold air. East of the mountains precipitation will end before the cold air has a chance to arrive and change precipitation over to anything wintery. Temps fall through the day. High around 50 at midnight but temps fall through the day.



FRIDAY - MONDAY


Partly cloudy. Highs around 40 on Friday but reaching up into the 50's Saturday - Monday.

Discussion



Sunday


The CAD holds strong today. Another stronger cold front will cross the area on Wednesday Night into Thursday spreading heavy rain and lightning storms through the area. Storms should not reach strong or severe limits. Behind the thunderstorms precipitation will change to sleet and snow. This will eventually transition over to all snow by Thursday Morning, continuing into Thursday Night. Moderate snow accumulations are possible. Dry air filters in for the late week into next weekend.



Today


Another cold air wedge sets up in the area. No signs of any temps being below freezing this morning. Therefore it looks like liquid rain showers will continue through the day, with fog/drizzle filling in the gaps between showers. High in low 40's



Wednesday


Temps soar ahead of the next approaching Arctic front into the low 60's. Clouds and showers will mask the temperature though. Scattered thunderstorms and heavy rain will move through early Wednesday Night. Behind the thunderstorms precipitation will quickly transition to sleet and snow. Moderate snow accumulations are possible.



Thursday


Snow showers likely. Additional light snow accumulations possible. High in mid 30's.



FRIDAY


Mostly cloudy and breezy. High in upper 30's.



SATURDAY - MONDAY


Partly cloudy. Friday highs in the upper 30's to around 40. Saturday highs around 50. Sunday highs in mid 40's. Monday high in low 50's.
