A wild week of weather

Good Monday to one and all. March is off and running with a continuation of the active weather pattern from February. That means we have a lot of wild weather on the way over the next several days. Everything from heavy rain and high water to heavy snow and sleet. Buckle up for the ride!

A modified arctic front moves through early Monday and knocks our temps well below freezing with some very light snow or flurries for a time. Watch for some slick spots to start the day.

Temps begin to increase Tuesday as a warm front lifts to our north. Gusty showers and some rumbles of thunder will be possible. Locally heavy rain will be a good bet, and that could cause some flooding problems. It looks as if the heaviest rain comes Tuesday night.

We have a strong arctic cold front moving in Wednesday that will spawn a couple of waves of low pressure. I’ve been highlighting this threat for a while, and the models are now beginning to settle in on the potential.

The latest NAM highlights heavy snow and sleet for much of the region:


NAM 2Keep in mind, those are just a snapshot of what one computer model suggests will happen from Wednesday to Thursday morning.

We still have a few days to figure out exactly how this system plays out. We might go from local flooding to a winter storm in just a few hours.

I will have updates as needed. Here are your tracking tools for the day:
