The snow has ended, but satellite data continues to
reveal a large shield of clouds extending from southwest to northeast across
our area. At last check, the temperature was down to 14 on Red Mountain with
single digit wind chills. The roads remain extremely icy and will remain that
way through late morning. I still expect some improvement on major roadways
thanks to sunshine, but this will be a slow improvement because of subfreezing
temperatures. The ice will remain a big issue tonight as lows tumble into the
ABOVE FREEZING THURSDAY: Temperatures will finally rise
above the freezing mark tomorrow. Highs will be reaching the 40s with lows in
the 20s tomorrow night. You can expect milder conditions on Friday with highs
in the low to mid 50s.
RAIN SATURDAY/SUNDAY: The upper air pattern will become
more west to east oriented on Saturday with clouds and showers returning to the
state. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 60s however Sunday will be a cold
and rainy day. Temperatures look to start off in the 50s on Sunday and fall
throughout the day.
MORE COLD AIR NEXT WEEK? The setup looks milder and wetter for the start of next week with showers possible on Monday and Tuesday. Long range data shows a potential heavy rainmaker by Wednesday followed by another shot of very cold air.
