Upcoming Storm...

Our next storm system is taking shape and will ease into the area later tonight and tomorrow. The bulk of the system will come late Sunday into the overnight with rain with warm temperatures falling into Monday. There will be a change over to wintry precipitation as the cold front passes. There is still a lot of uncertainty on how much and what kinds wintry precipitation there will fall.

As the cold front passes, there will be a shallow layer of cold air which could deliver some light icing to surfaces before the change over to all snow. The models have been going back and forth with the amount of post frontal precipitation (or snow). Even on the light side I would expect to see an inch or two. The Friday models had 6 to 8 inches for our area but have back off on the two latest runs.

Next week does see several systems moving through with potential for disruptive travel and school plans. More details as we get closer to the events.
