Winter Cold Continues Through Thursday
In the wake of the 3 storm systems of late last week, the winter pattern continues through Thursday and it is all about temperatures over the next three days. Much of the US from the Rockies eastward and as far south as South Florida will be experiencing below average temperatures. The only place that right now is seeing temperatures a little above average is the Southwest US.
Today we will see some sunshine which at least bring temperatures back into the upper 20s and lower 30s this afternoon. Much of the area that is under snow cover will not get back above freezing until perhaps late Thursday or for sure on Friday. Regional radar is nice and quiet. No precipitation is expected today through Thursday.
Tonight will be clear and very cold with lows in the teens. Wednesday and Thursday we will see sunshine with just in the 20s to low 30s at best. Wednesday night we will be down in the teens and single digits. Then temperatures will finally begin to moderate on Friday as we should go above freezing.
As temperatures being to moderate we will be looking at a weak weather system approaching Friday and likely passing by to our south as a weak storm. There might be an area of wet snow or just rain with this as it goes by late Friday or into Friday night but the upper air isn’t supportive of this system producing much. This winter the pattern has been for weak lead lows to precede stronger systems behind them and it is no different this time around.
The follow up storm system heads for the Great Lakes this weekend. That should allow temperatures to moderate on Saturday with some sunshine giving way to late arriving clouds with highs back into the 40s. Sunday it looks as if a cold front from a Great Lakes storm will bring showers here with highs trying to get back into the 50s before the front goes by. The long range pattern for next week is going to be more typical of March with temperatures closer to average and probably another storm system heading for the Great Lakes. More importantly it appears we are seeing the wintry pattern coming to an end this weekend and going to something more in line with the time of year.
