The Difference a Day Can Make

It’s a wintry day today as clouds permeate the sky along with cold air at the surface. Temperatures are running about 25 degrees cooler than 24 hours ago thanks to an arctic cold front that continues to pump in cold air. A few light drizzle showers are showing up on the MaxTrack Live Doppler. As temperatures drop later, we could see a few of these gain some snow to mix in.

Things have certainly changed in the forecast in the last few days. A wet and stormy Saturday turned into a dry, sunny, and mild Sunday. Now, we’re tracking a cold, cloudy, and even wintry work week as cold air moves in and settles. The light showers on the radar are passing and still encountering warm enough air to change everything to rain. As temperatures drop this evening, a few showers may change into mix showers or flurries. No accumulation expected. Tomorrow brings another chance for rain/snow mix showers, but we’re still only expecting light and isolated. Therefore, only minor accumulation is possible. With temperatures only making it a little above freezing surfaces will get cold. Light snow showers late Tuesday into Wednesday may put down a few tenths of an inch through the middle of the work week.
