Discussion

A wild ride this week with all of the following included in the forecast: snow showers, sleet, freezing rain, light rain, heavy rain, strong winds, unseasonably cold, unseasonably warm, fog, and even a possible thunderstorm. As milder air advances towards us this morning, it’ll run into stubborn resistance with the entrenched cold Arctic air mass not willing to give up its ground – at least not yet. As a result, sleet and/or freezing rain are in the offing for the early morning hours and there can be a small icy buildup. Then, as temperatures climb above the freezing mark, ordinary rain (light) will fall later this morning with late day highs near 40 degrees. It should stay above freezing tonight and, in fact, temperatures could climb late tonight with some fog possibly developing as well. Temperatures tomorrow should climb well into the 50's and should surge to just past 60 degrees on Wednesday as a strong cold front pushes towards the east coast. That front will generate some brief heavy rain here on Wednesday, perhaps even some strong winds and thunder, and then colder air will rush in behind the front Wednesday night and Thursday, and the renewed chill will last right into the first part of the new month.
