Cloud Season continues on this Monday although the sky MAY brighten a touch this afternoon.
Temperatures will be held mainly in the 30s once again today.
Low pressure will track toward the region on Tuesday, resulting in a chilly rain starting between 9-11am.
Notice this computer model is showing all rain for us but I would not be surprised to see a few wet snowflakes and/or sleep pellets mixed in with the rain, especially when the rain is falling a little harder.
Rain totals Tuesday will average 1/3 of an inch or so.
After a calm Wednesday…..
COLDEST AIR OF THE SEASON
We’ve been talking about this for over a week and it will finally arrive later this week. This will not be record-setting cold and won’t be unusual for December. But it is the coldest air of the season so far and the kind of air mass that NEVER arrived during last year’s record warm December.
Snow showers and harsh winds Thursday and Friday.
Snow will of course be most problematic in the primary snow belts downwind of lakes Erie and Ontario.
Still, I would not be surprised if some need a shovel north of I-80 in our veiwing area.
Wind chills Friday no higher than the teens.
Still cold Saturday but the snow showers should be less numerous.
Temperatures are likely to recover early next week before the next cold front arrives.
