A cold front will drop in tonight with showers developing. Skies will clear out rather quickly, but the brisk northwesterly wind will only allow temperatures to top out at around 40 degrees in the city.
Thursday, soggy weather returns back to the mountains.
The European model forecast is similar to the GFS, but it has slightly higher temperatures and doesn't hold onto the precipitation as long, arguing that there might be a few snowflakes before the precipitation ends but little or no accumulation.
Highs Monday and Tuesday will hang in the lower and middle 30s, with overnight lows in the 20s. Steadier to maybe even some moderate pockets of rain will stay with us through the afternoon hours.
The clouds will thicken as the cold front gets closer during the morning hours.
We'll have a few lake snow showers early Saturday, although much of the day will be precip. free with some sun but highs still only in the upper 30s.
This cold front will slide across Acadiana Monday evening producing a round of scattered showers late Monday into early Tuesday morning.
We'll be in stuck in an "active" cycle for the week with clipper systems every few days.
For the most part Thursday will feel very spring-like with temperatures climbing into the upper 70s to near 80 under partly sunny skies. Overnight lows will drop into about the mid-20s.
And the cool air looks to stick around for most of next week as highs Wednesday through Friday will only be in the 50s. With temperatures being so cold, some of that rain could turn into a wintry mix.
Rain will change to snow later Thursday and Thursday night across parts of the western Ohio Valley and interior parts of the mid-Atlantic as the storm strengthens and curves north, pulling in colder air on the backside of the storm. Of course, it is still too soon to tell exactly what will happen early next week.
NICE END TO THE WEEKEND: Temperatures will rebound nicely as we push into Sunday.
