January feels like January this week. Certainly no more 50 degree temperatures in the forecast. We will be chilly for some time to come. Overall, a quiet weather pattern on the way. There are a few chances for light snow this week, but no major storms on the way.
Our first chance of flurries/light snow arrives late on Monday. There is a “wimpy” low pressure center over the Dakotas right now that will swing through Monday night. Here is the RPM computer model for midnight.
The light blue represents very light snow or flurries. Most areas will only get a dusting at best. Our northern counties may get enough to make the ground white, but that is about it.
The next chance arrives on Thursday. This brings a better chance of accumulating snow, but it is not an impressive storm. The European model does not even bring us any snow with this short wave. The GFS is more bullish for snow. Here is the GFS for 6pm Thursday.
The path and timing of this is still in question, but an inch or two would be possible if the low scoots just to our south. Here is the RPM for noon Thursday.
Note again how light the snowfall is expected to be.
I am quite confident that after the wave moves through on Thursday, the cold air will rush in. Highs on Friday-Sunday will likely be in the teens.
Thanks for reading. Have a great week.
