Good Saturday, everyone. We have a big time outbreak of arctic air heading our way and this will send temps to their lowest readings in two years. The cold air is likely to be accompanied by several snow chances next week.
Temps today will be on the mild side of things as we await the arctic air. Highs will warm into the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Winds will be very gusty and could top 30mph at times.
The first arctic front moves in early Sunday with a few snow flurries possible. The real arctic air arrives on Monday as a system pushes in from the northwest. This will likely bring a round of light snow to much of the region. You can see that pushing in as early as Sunday night on the High Resolution NAM radar…
That will continue through Monday with snow showers and squalls kicking in as arctic air pours in from the northwest. That is some cold air and will bust the numbers you are getting from the models…
Check out the forecast temps from the GFS:
Single digit lows and highs in the teens will be common on Tuesday. Throw in a a gusty wind and it will feel sub zero at times.
Have a great start to your weekend and take care.
