More of a winter look ahead
Good Monday, folks. Our major flood situation is now behind us as drier air moves in. This dry air carries us through the middle of the week, but Old Man Winter is lurking as we head into early March.
Temps are seasonally chilly to begin the upcoming week, but the numbers climb as the week rolls on. This will come with very windy weather and temps spiking close to 60 by the second half of the week. That’s ahead of a strong storm system moving in here for the upcoming weekend.
This has true arctic air behind it and may take us from thunderstorms to snowflakes in a matter of hours:
The cold coming in behind that is very impressive as gusty northwest winds continue. Wind chills are forecast to take a walk on the frigid side:
The amount of cold coming this weekend into next week is impressive:
With that amount of cold, we will need to watch for a more southern storm track taking shape. That shows up on all the models and could mean winter weather for our region:
Enjoy your Monday and take care.
