The Slow Rise Up
Posted by Chris Lambert
We're sliding out of the core of the cold, however, it's not quite a quick recovery to say the least. Temperatures this afternoon warm into the lower to middle 20s, but with a breeze, it'll feel more like the teens. The winds won't be as strong as what we've seen, but still active with gusts out of the northwest exceeding 20mph. Slightly less wind and a bit warmer tomorrow. We'll keep the sun around too.
Heading up north skiing this weekend? Bundle up! Temps across ski country struggle to reach the mid teens today, near 20 tomorrow. With a brisk wind today, wind chill factors hover near zero, if not just below. Wind won't be as gusty tomorrow, but still add a chill to the air.
We'll start off cold again Monday, but as a warm front approaches, we'll notice temps tick up a bit as well as clouds increasing. As that warmer air pushes into the cold air in place, it initially rises up and over it, cools and condenses, and forms clouds and even some snow. I do think we'll have to contend with a period of light snow late-day Monday into Monday night before it changes to drizzle and freezing drizzle Monday night. Not much snow will fall, but a coating to and inch or two, combined with patch freezing drizzle, will create slick spots on the roads Monday evening and Monday night.
Much of that tapers off by Tuesday morning as temps warm to near 40 during the day with mostly cloudy skies.
Temps jump to the lower 50s on Wednesday with an active southerly breeze. Those 50s are short-lived though as rain showers work in by day's end, and eventually a steadier period of rain overnight. That rain is along a cold front, and on the other side, cold weather comes pouring back in by the end of the week.
Have a nice weekend!
