Good Saturday Evening!
Light rain has been falling on and off in advance of a complex and very large storm in the central Plains that is producing heavy snow and wind from the ockies to the Upper Midwest, after coming ashore in California on Tuesday and creating travel headaches, with upwards of a foot of snow in a wide swath from the southern California to New Mexico northward through the Rockies and the Dakotas and Minnesota..
A low now near Chicago with an elongated warm front will move east across Ohio early Sunday, with showers overnight, tapering off shortly after daybreak with the passage of a cold front.
The temperature will rise into the low 50s Sunday morning, before leveling off and then falling in the afternoon as colder air fills in. Breaks in the clouds will give us a little sun, then expect cloudy, blustery and colder weather Sunday evening.
Eventually, a coastal storm will take over late Sunday and Monday, bringing a blast of wintry weather to the Northeast that will trigger more delays on the busiest day for air travel tomorrow.
Wraparound showers and gusty winds, along with falling temperatures into the 30s, will make it feel like winter Sunday night. A light grassy accumulation is possible over higher terrain by morning.
Dry conditions and seasonable temperatures will prevail during the week ahead, without any significant storms.
Tonight: Showers, breezy, rumble of thunder possible late, rising to near 50
Sunday: Mostly cloudy, some breaks, showers return late. Early high in the low 50s, falling to 42 toward evening
Monday: Few flurries, mostly cloudy, blustery, brisk, cold. High 39 (34)
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. High 40 (30)
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. High 44 (31)
Thursday: Sunny, milder. High 49 (31)
Friday: Clouds increase, breezy, cooler. High 45 (33)
Have a great evening! -Ben
