This morning was not as frigid as yesterday morning and today is our “oasis” in the overall pattern. A warm front is pushing across the region this morning:
In the wake of that front, temperatures will blast off during the midday and afternoon. We expect highs in the 60s this afternoon. The other thing we will notice today is the wind, which can gust to 35-40 mpg this afternoon. I don’t think we will mind with the warm temperatures.
Shower timing has not changed much since yesterday…..we look for rain drops to push in between 7-9pm on average. 15 hour simulated radar:
Showers will stick around into at least part of the day tomorrow. Models are advertising about 1/3″-1/2″ of rain in total:
By late Thursday, temperatures will have cooled enough that there may be a few snowflakes across northeast Ohio and western PA:
BACK TO THE DEEP FREEZE
Friday and Saturday will be COLD. There’s also a chance for some accumulating snow Friday night and early Saturday as this system rolls across. Some lake-effect/lake-enhancement will get going as the arctic air blows over the lakes.
I think there is a fair chance of a small accumulation of snow…perhaps an inch or so? Well hone in on this over the next 24 hours.
High temperatures Saturday…..more like February.
Sunday will be the nicer half of the weekend. Still quite chilly with highs in the lower 40s. Some sunshine as well.
Next week will still be below average overall but the temperature swings should not be as dramatic as this week.
