We’ll kick off the work week on a cold, but normal note. Temperatures are cooling down into the upper 20s this morning which will be a 10-20 degree drop from 24 hours ago. The MaxTrack is showing a mix of rain and snow in the eastern and southeastern counties, but it is unlikely any of it is making it down to the ground. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy for the start of the day.

Clouds will eventually show some clearing, although it will not be a completely sunny day. We sit in between a departing low and a weak cold front. Therefore, we still have enough low pressure to provide cloud coverage around us. Still, some sunshine will mix in through the day making it look better than the weekend that just passed. The next front will arrive through the morning on Tuesday. This will squeeze out any leftover moisture allowing for showers to start falling Tuesday morning wrapping up in the middle afternoon for the eastern counties. Rain will be the primary form or precipitation with surface temperatures remaining above freezing during the event. That being said, a few flakes could mix in, especially for high terrain and the northeastern counties as the front passes. Accumulation is not expected. We enter the middle of the week on a cloudy and cold note as temperatures remain below 40 degrees. The late-week system looks to also bring mostly rain, with some wintry weather mixing in a higher elevations.
