TODAY: I look for partly to mostly cloudy skies for the next 24 hours. Temperatures will be around 44 today and 26 tonight. I stuck to my guns of going with mid 40’s when guidance the last couple days suggested upper 40’s, and that looks like what’ll happen.
NATIONALLY: The weather map for today looks like a mess. Our next system will be to our west and producing snow over the northern plains and northern Rocky Mountain states. Seattle and Portland will catch a break, but the Cascades will still be seeing snow. The Great Lakes will continue to see snow today, too, especially the favored areas where wind blows off the lakes. Meanwhile, parts of Louisiana and coastal Texas will see showers and thunderstorms.
MONDAY-TUESDAY: As we get back to work this week, another storm will move in. Currently, it appears to be a rain event to start, then a transition to snow Tuesday morning before wrapping up in the mid-afternoon. Light accumulations cannot be ruled out, especially southeast of the city. Stay tuned as we refine this forecast. Highs will be in the middle 40’s on Monday. Monday night as precipitation begins we’ll fall off to the lower 30’s, and Tuesday I think we stay in the upper 30’s at best.
WEDNESDAY-SATURDAY: Partly cloudy skies should dominate this portion of the forecast. The guidance has us in the upper 50’s to near 60 by the end of the week. I don’t agree with that just yet — I am willing to go lower 50’s by Saturday and will adjust upward if need be.
