Good Saturday, everyone. If you look up the definition of ugly weather in the dictionary, it will simply tell you to look outside. The weather we have out there right now is just flat out nasty and will carry us through Sunday.
Highs today range from the low and mid 30s in the north, where there could be some ice, to the mid and upper 40s in the south. Rounds of showers will continue to roll through the region from west to east:
There is very little change in the weather through Sunday. This is pretty much a “what you see is what you get” type of a forecast.
Temps surge again by Monday and Tuesday with readings heading toward the 60 degree mark. Gusty showers and thunderstorms will be possible during this time. This looks like a surge of rain that will be followed by a brief chill down on Wednesday:
In this active pattern, there’s no shortage of systems ready to take its place. Watch how the action increases again by Thursday and Friday:
It’s after this system that we start to see Old Man Winter flex a little muscle. The European Model shows an interesting scenario late next weekend with a huge cutoff storm system developing:
Notice how the higher heights show up in Canada instead of the United States. That allows for a much colder setup with an active southern storm track.
The GFS Ensembles also are on board for this winter pattern taking over:
Have a great Saturday and take care.
