Moving Back into a Wet Pattern

video preview image

Today will be a dry one across the area with some patchy morning fog but most areas should see plenty of sunshine this afternoon as high pressure remains over the area through early tomorrow. Areas of fog to start the day tomorrow then a cold front will approach late in the day and this is that splitting system we’ve been watching all week. The weather models are coming into better agreement that we’ll see rain and snow, but how long the precipitation and how much is now the question. This system is not going to split as far as some of the models had previously, so now the question is how far it really will. Less of a split brings more widespread moderate precipitation lasting through much of Sunday whereas more of split leads to light showers and ending early on Sunday.

Next week we’ll be moving back into a wet pattern with the jetstream shifting south through the week and bringing a cold front through the area bringing more widespread rain and snow to the area starting late Monday with the heaviest rain and snow falling late Tuesday through Wednesday and winds picking up during the day Tuesday. Once the front finally moves through Wednesday we’ll see showers continue into Thursday with a chance for snow showers down to the valley floor overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning as the much colder airmass moves in and snow levels plummet.

Thanks for logging on and have a wonderful weekend! Doing something fun outdoors this weekend? I’d love to see your photos and maybe share them on-air, just post them on my Facebook Page!
