After a morning that started off cold, showery, and even snowy in some sections, the clouds finally cleared and a nice afternoon was had by most. With the sun out and temps breaking into the 40s over most of the state, it felt like a spring day, considering the endless onslaught of Arctic air which has basically impacted the state unabated since late January. Currently across the state we have temperatures in the mid to upper 20s inland to low 30s at the shore, these temperatures will only fall off slightly as we head through the evening, back to the lower 20s inland and mid to upper 20s at the shore. Also some clouds will move in and increase toward morning, in association with a disturbance that will mainly miss the state to the south, but there is a slight chance of mixed precipitation, especially in the southern portion of the state, through about mid morning Monday.
Skies remain clear through early Tuesday morning, and yet again, clouds will be on the increase as another disturbance will scrape the state to the south. It does not look as though there will be any appreciable amounts of precipitation and anything that does fall looks to be more wet than white. Even during the night, anything that does fall will be mainly rain and not frozen, outside of maybe some spots north of I84 later Tuesday night. There could be some lingering showers into early Wednesday morning, but all looks to be cleared out by the Wednesday AM rush setting the stage for beautiful day. Skies will clear out, and when all is said and done, temperatures will have risen to 50 degrees or above with sunny skies. 50 degrees at this point will feel like we are on a tropical island somewhere, but not so fast, starting Wednesday night, cooler temps move in, with temps dropping back through the 20s.
After the storm exits the area later Saturday, it looks as though temperatures will rebound back into the 40s for one day on Sunday, but those temperatures look to be short-lived as temperatures for next Monday look to dip back into the 30s again. Looking even further into the week of the 15th, it looks as if we will have a quick warm up in the middle of the week, but right back into the freezer for the end of that week. So winter look like it still wants to hold on, through at least the end of March.
