Sunday will be brutally cold with highs struggling to ten degrees. The wind chill will remain below zero all day long. Perhaps it will be a good idea to spend Valentine's Day indoors this year.
Next, our attention turns to a potentially significant and high impact storm for Monday night into Tuesday.
President's Day looks to start off dry and not as cold. However, as a storm tracks northward, light snow may overspread the area from south to north Monday afternoon and evening. Steady snow will likely develop Monday night before changing over to a mix of rain and snow, or to all rain by Tuesday morning.
The exact track of the storm remains uncertain. It appears as though the center will track just to our east-- placing us on the border of all snow or a mix of rain and snow. If the track shifts westward, we will see more rain and much less snow. If the track shifts east, the potential for a significant snowfall exists.
We are confident that this storm will produce a lot of precipitation as the moisture source goes as far south as the Caribbean.
It's far to early to discuss snow amounts at this juncture in time, however as we nail down the storm track, timing of precipitation and precipitation type, we will be able to provide more detailed information.
A secondary storm moves through Wednesday. This one is a fast moving clipper system that will provide a period of light snow showers to the area Wednesday.
The rest of the week is warmer with temperatures in the upper 30s to near 40. We will be watching the potential for a wintry mix next Friday and Saturday.
