Precipitation summary… There was no measurable precip in the last 24 hours.
Monday through Wednesday… We will be between a ridge extending north through the central part of the country and a trough along the West Coast. This means we’ll see patches of mid and upper high clouds, seasonal temps, and breezy afternoons.
Temps… Highs will be in the low to high 40s and lows will be in the low teens to low 20s.
Winds… Peak winds will be around 20mph each afternoon. The windy spots could see 25mph on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thursday through Sunday… The pattern will remain weak and disorganized, but moisture will gradually increase. Rapid moving, barely discernible troughs could trigger occasional snowshowers anytime during this period. It’s a pesky pattern to forecast. My expectations for snow are minimal.
Temps… Thursday Highs will be in the high-30s to low 40s and lows will be in the low-single digits to mid-teens. Friday through Sunday highs will be in the low to high 40s and lows will be in the low teens to low 20s.
Winds… Winds will peak in the 15-20mph range each afternoon.
My next post will be on Tuesday.
