More snow is expected today-tonight before tapering Monday. This is courtesy of lake effect & the back side of our storm system.
0.5-1.8" of additional is expected with highest amounts in our northwestern counties.
North-northeast to north winds may gust to 30-40 mph (especially evening-tonight), leading to blowing & drifting.
Watch for roads to slicken & ice up again.
Temperatures will drop back to the mid to upper 20s tonight.
The snow will decrease to scattered flurries with time tomorrow with mostly cloudy skies, blustery conditions from the north & highs 30-34.
With mostly cloudy skies, lows of 21-25 are expected tomorrow night.
Partly cloudy skies, less wind & highs of 31-35 are expected Tuesday, followed by 18-22 Tuesday night.
Mostly sunny skies are expected Wednesday with 33-39 for highs.
Rain is likely Thursday with 40s (with strong southwest winds), followed by a surge of cold by the end of the week with highs only 22-27 Friday given the deep snow pack northwest of our area & lingering snow pack here.
The rain Thursday may end as brief snow Thursday night with strong northwest winds 25-40 mph.
After that potent cold surge February 5-8 with below normal temperatures, a warm surge should arrive with above normal temperatures, rain & some potential t'storms in the February 9-11 time frame. Locally-heavy rainfall is possible.
Another cold surge should come in February 14-22.
These two cold surges look to be the coldest temperatures of the winter, beating the recent brief cold burst but quite a bit & exceeding the Christmas brief cold burst.
Watch the above normal temperatures leave & the surge of impressive cold spill in from the northwest:
It looks like a good set-up at times, especially mid-month, for ice & even snow.
Late February (after February 22) to early March looks to return warmer than normal:
