Cold shots keep coming at us

Good Monday, folks. It’s a very wet start to the week, but it’s the cold shots taking center stage in the weather world. These shots will throw frost out way this week, with even colder air lurking by the weekend and early next week.

Rounds of rain and a few storms are rumbling across the state today. Locally heavy rains are a good bet, with several areas picking up an inch or so of rain. Here are your Monday tracking toys:

Chilly air follows all this up for the rest of the week with a hard frost likely by Wednesday and/or Thursday mornings. Lows by then may be closing in on the freezing mark in many areas.

The setup for next weekend has an interesting look to it with a system ejecting out of the southwest and a major blast of cold air diving in from the northwest:

That’s another healthy shot of rain with the GFS following it up with the first chance for some flakes:

Obviously, the chance for flakes are always low for this time of year, but it’s happened many times before, including multiple times this decade. We shall see about that.

The cold associated with that system is impressive, with the numbers sliding into the 20s for lows:

The last week of the month appears to be just itching for a major amplification, allowing for some big time cold to enter the country:

Have a great Monday and take care.
