Good morning! Happy Monday….
After 1-2″ of snow Saturday night, Sunday was a “decent” day, just cold for early April. As we head into a new work week, the cool weather will continue. Temperatures spiked into the lower and middle 50s early this morning but it was a VERY deceptive start to the day with temperatures expected to tumble quickly over the next several hours.
Strong cold front is pushing across the state this morning.
The rest of today will feature variable clouds. A stray flurry can’t be ruled out this afternoon.
This is a LEGIT cold air mass that is sweeping in. Lows tonight will slip into the upper teens. The record low is 16 at YNG airport.
TUESDAY: BEST DAY OF THE WEEK
And it will still be chilly! But that strong April sun will help matters.
REST OF THE WEEK: NOT SO GOOD
Warm air will get dragged northward Wednesday and temperatures will get back into the 50s. But….a cold front will provide increasing clouds and some rain by late Wednesday and Wednesday night.
That front will sweep eastward Thursday and it could be another day with falling temperatures.
Could there be snowflakes seen before the day is through?? Maybe.
Friday will be blustery and cold. Another taste of February or early March. Chance for flurries.
ONE MORE COLD WEEKEND
The weekend is looking cold but a better pattern awaits beyond it. The center of the anomalous cold will be overhead Saturday:
The pattern beyond this does not look “warm” but it does look more “typical” of this time of the year.
