Good Saturday, folks. Our extended holiday weekend rolls on as nice looking conditions continue out there today. We’re shaking off the ice from the frigid weather of late and have a bit of a warm up ahead. Don’t get too spoiled by it… I’m tracking another arctic attack by next weekend.
Today will feature partly sunny skies and temps in the mid and upper 40s. Winds will be a little gusty as high clouds increase. These clouds will thicken up a bit on Sunday with temps back in the 40s.
A few showers will try to develop by late in the day, but the best chance for chilly drops will come on Monday. The NAM future radar shows the action increasing:
Milder air will slowly take over by the middle of the week as 50s roll into town. This will be ahead of a plains storm system that tracks toward the Great Lakes by Thursday and Friday. That drags another arctic front our way and will really increase our rain chances ahead of it.
The air coming in behind this will be frigid and we are likely to see some wintry weather accompanying it by the weekend.
The overall pattern is one that will likely feature overrunning wintry weather across much of our region from next weekend into the following week.
