Roller coaster temperature pattern

Good Wednesday to one and all. A few snowflakes are flying across the region, as our temps come in on the seasonally cold side. Milder air is waiting in the wings, all part of a roller coaster temperature setup taking us through the rest of the month.

Highs out there Wednesday are in the upper 30s to near 40, with a few snowflakes flying. The most likely chance at seeing snowfall is early in the day, and I can’t rule out a few coatings:

Temps rebound by the end of the week as another system moves our way for the weekend. The GFS and European models are now similar with the evolution of our late Saturday-Sunday system, keeping this fairly progressive. That solution means rain that can end as a few snowflakes:

The Canadian model flipped to what previous runs of the European model had been showing, with a healthier storm and a higher chance of some snow:

At the moment, the pattern favors the progressive solution.

Why do I think that? Because the flip back to a harsh winter pattern might keep things moving along in front of it. We are seeing the flip getting going late next week, with the first week of February seeing the brutal cold coming back into the country. That shows up very well on the European model for next Friday:

A fun February is likely ahead for cold and snow lovers.

Have a great day and take care.
