Good Tuesday, folks. Sunny skies are about to take the weather reigns and will dominate the weather for the rest of the week. Temperatures are cold now, but will moderate very quickly for the second half of the week.
Temps out there today start in the 20s with upper 40s to low 50s this afternoon. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny.
High pressure slides off to our east for the rest of the week, turning our winds to the west and southwest. That means an increase in temperatures from Wednesday through Friday. Highs Wednesday will generally be in the 60s, but reach 65-70 degrees for highs Thursday and Friday.
A weekend storm system rolls into the Great Lakes, dragging a cold front slowly across the state later in the day. That could bring some strong thunderstorms to our region. There’s quite a bit of cold air coming in behind this front and there’s a chance for a wave of low pressure to develop along it Sunday. If that’s the case, some winter weather is possible.
That’s certainly what the European has been saying:
We shall see how that works, but the blast of cold is real and will stick around for a day or two. Beyond that, temps come back up into next week and that may roll us into the month of April. The CFS model has a warmer than normal look to it for the month:
Have a great day and take care.
