A pattern flip is expected on Sunday and much below normal temperatures and rain snow mix on Saturday is expected to give way to above normal temperatures with daily chances for thunderstorms for the first half of the work week next week. Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible on Wednesday but it is too early to call at this time.
Saturday: Snow showers are possible on the morning on Saturday on the back side of a polar low. Maybe mixing with some rain in the late morning and early afternoon. Precipitation chances will decrease as the day goes on on Saturday, the day will be cloudy regardless, highs in the lower 40’s. Low in the lower 30’s.
Sunday: High pressure builds on top of the region, a pleasant day is expected, a bright sunny day. Highs around 60, morning low in the upper 20’s.
Monday: A system is expected to form just south of the region with a stalling front expected to linger around for much of the day on Monday. We could see some isolated to scattered thunderstorms on the day on Monday. The day will not be a total washout, the day will be partly to mostly sunny. Highs will be around 70. Morning low in the mid 40’s.
Tuesday: Most of the day Tuesday should be dry, however the evening hours could see some rain showers move into the area as another low pressure system approaches the area. Once again, not a washout most of the day for now is forecasted to be dry, high around 70, morning low in the low 50’s.
Wednesday: A frontal system is expected to move through the region on Wednesday night/ Thursday morning of next week. This could spark of the potential for thunderstorms, some which could be strong to severe as the synoptic models are hinting that there could be some instability in the atmosphere to create some severe weather. We won’t know details on potential severe weather threat in a couple of more days when the mesoscale models are in range for Wednesday three days out. A line of thunderstorms are expected to move through with the arrival of the cold front regardless of intensity. Highs in the low 70’s, lows in the mid 50’s.
