Arctic cold for the week ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. Dry air killed a lot of the light snow across the region Saturday evening. Overnight snow showers managed to put down some small accumulations and that may impact travel early this morning for some.

Temps today will hit the 30s as skies slowly clear.

The theme of the forecast for the week ahead is a cold one as arctic fronts dive back into the region. Each of these will bring snow chances our way. The first one arrives on the scene by late Monday night into Tuesday. The latest run of the NAM shows the increase in light snow:

Check out the cold blast coming in by Tuesday afternoon:

That will likely give us highs in the teens with the potential for single digit lows by Wednesday morning.

That’s when another arctic front dives in from the northwest. This will deliver another snow chance and likely bring in a colder shot of air by Thursday:

GFS 2

Again, highs in the teens with single digit lows will be possible for the end of the week. This is a pattern that will threaten us with even colder air by the end of the weekend into next week. That’s when the polar vortex tries to work southward into the Great Lakes.

Make it a great day and take care.
