We have been in the deep freeze the last several days, but we have had some “warming” with temperatures inching upward with a south to southwest breeze/wind at times coming in ahead of the cold front.
That cold front trails low pressure that will be moving into Quebec Saturday morning and will stretch from about Detroit to St. Louis at 7 a.m. Saturday. Ahead of that front, we will have a south to southwest wind at times, but temperatures are going to be flirting with the freezing mark and maybe even just surpassing. Although this isn’t the set up for a big snow, there will certainly be some snow breaking out late Saturday morning and occasional snow continuing into the evening.
As the front crosses the area Saturday evening, accompanied by some energy in a negatively tilted overall trough, we can even have a few bursts of heavier snow across the area. The warming we get will be set back behind the front Saturday night and Sunday. We should be dry Sunday with some sunshine, then warm advection clouds will spill across and will probably bring solid clouds for a time Sunday afternoon and night.
