WEATHER BLOG: Cold On The Way

Well, although there will be plenty of cold to go around, snow-lovers will not be happy with this pattern as the northern and southern branches of the jet stream remain separate over this forecast period. Any snow will be from clipper systems and will not add up much across the region. After Friday night’s minor “storm,” we will see a quieter weather pattern settle across the area over the next few days. Another clipper-like system will approach overnight and will pass well off to our northwest Sunday in Canada with some upper-level energy passing into the Atlantic Sunday. Thus the area will see some clouds Saturday night with the chance of a couple of flurries Sunday morning from the 500 mb trough axis.

We will be seasonably chilly and breezy Sunday but with the Arctic air over the northern Great Lakes and the northern Plains it will not be frigid. This same pattern will hold for Monday as the Arctic boundary is still to our northwest. The Arctic front will pass through late on Monday night or Tuesday morning and with it the threat is there for some snow squalls with the passage of the front that may cause some traffic problems for Tuesday morning’s commute. We then are in the deep freeze. Tuesday will be brutally cold with a strong wind making it feel even colder. We will be in this cold and generally dry weather pattern for the rest of the workweek right into next weekend.
