Good Friday to one and all. We’ve made it to the final weekend of 2013 and mother nature is giving us splitting things up. We have one good day and one not so good day ahead. All of this will take us toward a much more wintry look and feel for the New Year.
In the short term, temps today will warm well into the 40s under mainly sunny skies. This looks like a good day to get out and enjoy some nice air. If you miss out… Saturday could be even better with readings close to 50 degrees.
Clouds will increase during the afternoon and this will be ahead of a storm system rolling northward out of the Gulf of Mexico. Rain arrives late Saturday night into Sunday morning as this system scoots to our northeast.
Arctic air shows up by Sunday night as a front dives in from the northwest. This will likely have a band of light snow behind it for Monday. Arctic cold temps will be with us on Monday with temps in the middle 20s on a gusty northwesterly wind.
A northwesterly wind flow will bring systems our way into New Year’s Eve and Day. Snow chances will be around as we usher in 2014. There is a lot of energy lining up to dive into the region next week…
That pattern is COLD and can produce frequent snow chances across our part of the world.
Make it a great day and take care.
