After temperatures soared to 70° on Sunday, we are getting a quick dose of reality--- it's winter. Temperatures will remain nearly 10° above the seasonal average over the next few days, but by the end of the work week-- we will see temperatures struggling to get to the lower 40s. Starting off next week, temperatures will only warm into the upper 30s. These temperatures aren't all that dramatic--but following a few days of temperatures in the 60s and 70s-- it's worth putting those numbers under the microscope.
The biggest difference will be in the mornings. Kids are headed to the bus stops and parents are preparing for their morning commutes, and temperatures will be in the 20s Friday morning-- which will be a significant change from the rest of the week. Couple that with moisture moving in EARLY Saturday morning and that brings the potential for snow back into the forecast. At this point it looks like parts of the area will see the full array of precipitation: rain, sleet and snow. There is the POTENTIAL for some accumulation as the temperatures will be below freezing Friday evening but at this point it is too early to talk totals-- but we will continue mining the data this week and keep you updated during our forecasts.
