MONDAY WEATHER BRIEFING

GOOD MORNING!

Welcome to a new week and what SHOULD be winter’s last hurrah.

We had some rain overnight, here’s a sampling of rain totals:

The rest of the day will feature a gusty wind and some clearing. Hi-res models show the Sun returning this afternoon:

Temperatures will remain well above average with some places touching 50 this afternoon.

NEXT SYSTEM: RAIN TO SNOW

The next fast-moving system will arrive late Tuesday and we expect rain for at least a few hours into the overnight. Then as the colder air wraps in behind the storm a changeover to wet snow is likely to occur.

We are not expecting the snow to be a “big deal” but, especially on non-paved surfaces there might be a slushy inch (maybe 2″ north of I-80) by daybreak Wednesday.

LATE-WEEK: CLOSE SHAVE?

A quiet day Thursday. Then, an area of low pressure will quickly move across the southern states Thursday night into Friday morning.

Accumulating snow is most likely south of I-70 with this feature.

But still, there is at least a chance that the Valley gets a small accumulation of snow late Thursday night and early Friday. More on that as we get closer.

LONG RANGE: SPRING FEVER!

I have been talking about this since late last week…..NEXT week looks very balmy for March. The West will turn cold and stormy and the East will see well above-average temperatures. I think it hits 70 or higher at LEAST one or two days.

It may not be a redo of the ridiculously warm start to Spring in March 2012 but it should be impressive nonetheless!
