Calm before a late week system

Good Wednesday, everyone. It’s a calm day across the region and this calm will continue into early Thursday. It’s at this point we turn our attention toward another potent storm system rolling through here late this week into the weekend.

How about we start with today and roll forward? Cool? Good. 🙂 Temps will be in the low 40s for many areas as a few clouds increase from the west. Those clouds will continue to thicken on Thursday with rain and a possible light mix arriving Thursday night. This will be ahead of the lead low that works right on top of us and into the Ohio Valley. As this weakens, the main low develops to our east and then works north. As that happens a slow-moving upper low spins over us.

The end result may go like this:

Thursday Night: Rain arrives from the west, but this could begin as a brief mix of wintry precipitation. That’s especially the case across the north.

Friday: Rain is likely with winds that should be rather gusty.

Friday Night: This is still mainly a rain event.

Saturday: Rain mixes with some snow with the potential for a switch to wet snow at some point.

Saturday Night\Sunday: This is our best chance for some snow as colder air comes in behind the low to our east. Any potential accumulations continue to look light, but will depend on how strong that northwest flow is.

Here are the midday model trends:

Have a great day and take care.
