TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy, lows near 30.
TUESDAY: Variably cloudy, highs in the mid-40s.
EXTENDED: The pattern continues to be fairly quiet through Wednesday despite a weak disturbance bringing more clouds to the area on Tuesday. A deep trough in the jet stream later in the week will help pull more moisture from the Gulf of Mexico into our area, priming us for measurable precipitation. An area of low pressure will develop and track to our south Thursday through Saturday, and shifting of that track will determine the type of precipitation we can expect through the weekend. With temperatures in the mid-50s on Thursday, we can expect rain through the night into Friday. Colder air to our north will start settling in Friday, allowing a change over to snow depending on how far north or south the low is at that time. Precipitation is expected to end as snow if the system stays far enough south, and accumulation may be possible if this scenario plays out.
