Frigid Holiday Weekend Snow Tuesday Night

Very cold air came in on Saturday in a big rush as we went from the 60s to the teens and that cold air takes is through today and Monday. We hit bottom in the single digits and middle teens this morning and highs will only be in the 20s today even though we will have a good deal of sunshine. The pressure gradient remains rather tight so it will be breezy to windy at times today adding a bit of discomfort to being out doors. Wind chille will be in the teens all day.  Radars are quiet today and will remain so through Monday. It will be another clear very cold overnight with lows Monday morning again in the single digits to mid teens. Monday we will have sunshine most of the day with highs again just in the 20s.

Tuesday brings clouds and a disturbance that will be moving across the area from the west. This upper trough will trigger off a period of snow late Tuesday into Tuesday night. Three might be enough moisture with this to produce a coating to a couple of inches in some places. Low pressure will then develop later on Wednesday east of the North Carolina coast but the system has no way to lift northward but will push eastward and offshore with no impact here. Cold air settles in behind this low but this will be the last shot of cold air for awhile. Once it pulls out it will warm up next weekend.

This is the first significant change in the pattern we have seen in many weeks with a ridge in the East and a trough in the West. This will mean warmer temperatures next weekend into the 50s and it may come without any rain so you may be able to enjoy it. It looks like the chess pieces are going to be moved around for while. The extreme nature of the weather pattern from mid December to mid January could not last forever thankfully and it looks as if the rubber band has snapped back at least for the now.
