Good Sunday bloggers,

We are tracking a significant change in the weather for tonight and Veteran's day. We know for sure that very cold air will rush in overnight on north winds 15-35 mph. Temperatures will be in the mid 20s by morning with wind chill values between 5° and 15°. Now, will there be any snow? The data has been trending towards more precipitation. This is not that strong of a storm and it is getting it's act together as it moves by. So, that is why we are not 100% confident on how much snow will occur.

As it stands now we could see a light mix start and change to light snow between midnight and 6 AM as temperatures drop to the mid 20s. This could cause slick spots as anytime you have temperatures dropping quickly below freezing at night with even light precipitation, surfaces can become slick quick. 6 AM to noon Monday will see flurries and possibly a period of snow. If the snow is very light to light and brief, it will likely just blow around in the roads. If the band of snow is more substantial, then we could see a coating of snow and slick conditions. A dusting to 1" is possible and even 1/4" of snow can be a problem. Regardless of the snow, it will be windy all day with temperatures stuck in the 20s along with wind chill values between 5° and 15°.

Monday night the sky will clear and the wind will decrease, as lows drop to around 10°. Wind chill values will be near zero. Ouch! Tuesday will only reach 30° despite full sunshine. Wednesday into the weekend look better with highs in the 40s and 50s.

Have a great week ahead.
