We are tracking our next chance for accumulating snow. This will NOT be a big storm, but it might have impact, due to timing. Light rain is expected to arrive after sunset.  The rain will eventually mix with and, for roughly the northern half of our viewing area, changeover to snow. Mixed precip events like this are notoriously difficult to forecast. Everyone should get at least some snow, but with temperatures between 32-36 degrees tomorrow, the snow could be heavy, wet snow mixing with rain at times.  If this were to be an all-snow event, 3 to 6 inches — or more — would be possible.

Another piece of energy in the upper levels could bring some more light snow to our western zones on Wednesday, and a few flurries east of the mountains as the storms exits and intensifies off the coast, but we are not expecting any more accumulation. The remainder of the work week, we will be dealing with dangerously cold air.

Wednesday and Thursday will be fairly breezy with temperatures in the 30s and wind chills in the teens and 20s. We stay in the 30s to finish out the next work week with sunshine, thanks to high pressure building back into the area. Valentine’s weekend we will have highs in the 20s and lows in the single digits many neighborhoods.

Monday: Becoming cloudy.

Rain to snow mix late.

Highs: Low to mid 40s

 

Tuesday: Snow showers, light at times with heavy bands here and there – a few inches likely

Highs: Mid to upper 30s

 

Wednesday: Flurries and cold

Highs: Mid to upper 30s.

Wind chills in the 20s.

 

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, continued cold, less Wind

Highs: Mid to upper 30s
