This has been a very unsuspectingly cold and snowy week! The surprises don’t end yet though. A low pressure system forming in the western U.S. will start making its way east and we will start seeing the effects of this system starting Thursday. The temperature for the day is expected to rise into the mid 30’s allowing some of that snow to melt away. This trend will continue into Thursday night as we will see overcast move into the area as well. Friday will be the beginning of the system as temperatures will jump into the mid 40’s with showers expected during the AM hours. Saturday will be the full brunt of the system as temperatures will rise even higher almost peaking at 60°F. We will also be expecting a very wet day with chances of thunderstorms to follow. Sunday the system will begin to exit the area as we will see temperatures dip into the low 50’s with just partly cloudy conditions remaining. Monday will then get us back on track with our fall weather with temperatures in the low 40’s and upper 30’s.
