Watching for more winter weather

Good Monday to one and all. Snow showers and flurries are winding down across our part of the world, but some slick spots are left behind. As we look ahead, we see that Mother Nature has a few more winter weather systems trying to affect our region.

Monday is another very windy and cold day across our region. Snow showers and flurries will hang tough early, with mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon. Some areas will be waking up to a fresh blanket of snow, with delays and cancellations.

We get another cold front to work in late Tuesday. Temps spike into the 40s ahead of it as winds get very gusty on us. A rain shower is possible ahead of the front, with some flurries and snow shower behind it into Wednesday.

This is a pretty cold air mass pressing in from the north:

With the west-east gradient, we will need to watch for a weak light snowmaker zipping through late Thursday and Friday.

That sets the stage for a bigger system potentially affecting our weather this weekend. This can bring rain, snow ice, or a combo of the above to the region:

Make it a great Monday and take care.
