Friday Blog: Lets look at the weekend and our next storm system. -Doug

Hey guys and gals, it is Friday Blog time.  I love Friday’s.  The weekend is almost here.  I do hate how fast they fly right on by and then it is Monday blog time lol.  But we do have a lot of weather to watch over the next week.  We are entering a stretch of the Heady Pattern over the next 5 weeks that will be nice and active and that starts next week.  First off, lets look at Friday and the weekend.

Friday

It will be a little cooler on Friday, but not shabby.  It warms into the 50s over the weekend.  In fact, the weekend looks great.

Saturday

We actually go into the 60s on Monday.  Our next system rolls in on Tuesday.  This will be a stronger wave and gives up the chances for wintry weather as well.  Showers and maybe a few thunderstorms on Tuesday.

Tuesday Evening

As an arctic front drops in (our 4th this winter season) much colder air filters in by Tuesday night.  We will switch to freezing rain and sleet.

Tuesday Night

Pinpointing ice amounts this far out is very hard, but we may have some ice issues at this point in time, so stay tuned.  As colder air kicks in, we should go over to some snow on Wednesday.

Wednesday Night

Snow amounts also, I won’t take a stab at that until Sunday or Monday.  Also bitterly cold temperatures work in.  Long range forecast is below.

Next Friday – Saturday: Staying cold with some snow showers on Saturday.

Feb 6th-12th:  Most of the week cool with rain or snow chances on Monday, which could be accumulating.  We do warm up a bit by Friday with thunderstorms, then colder with rain or snow chances on Saturday.

Feb 13th-19th:  A cold start to the week with mild temperatures and rain chances returning by Tuesday.  Staying mild with thunderstorms possible on Thursday, then much colder with rain and snow chances on Friday and Saturday.

Feb 20th-26th:  The first half of the week cold but mild temps the second half of the week.  Slight chances for rain on Thursday and Friday.

Feb 27th-March 5th:  A mild start on Sunday and Monday, then cool the rest of the week.  Rain chances on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  Best chances on Wednesday and Friday.

March 6th-12th:  Cool all week with rain or snow chances on Sunday and Monday.  Much colder through the middle of the week with rain or snow chances returning by Friday.
