Weather: Coming out of hibernation (1/9 AM)

Amanda's Forecast Discussion

Good morning!

Tuesday morning snow showers will wind down as a cold front swings through. Slushy, wet roads are something we battle against on the commute into work and school. By the afternoon, snow will have tapered off entirely with peeks of sunshine possible. The wind shifts from out of the southwest, to out of the northwest at 5-15 mph. The temp maxes out around 30° midday, slipping into the 20s by the afternoon. Tonight, partly cloudy with a low of 5-15°.

Wednesday, there will be long stretches of morning sunshine, with clouds slowly filling in. The temp rebounds to the low and mid 30s with a light south wind. Wednesday night into Thursday, spotty, light freezing rain and sleet could create icy patches with a buildup of 0.05" to 0.10", especially east of the Green Mountains. Low temp, around 30°. Thursday, low to mid 40s.

Late week, a strengthening low pressure system will move northeast from the lower Mississippi River Valley. The exact track of the low matters a lot. It will determine what type of precip will see, and for how long. Right now, the current forecast track would provide us with a 'rain Friday, to wintry mix with icing Friday night, to snow showers Saturday' situation. It would allow temps to soar well into the 40s, if not near 50° Friday, fall through the 30s on Saturday, and stall in the teens by Sunday into Monday. We'll be watching closely and keep you updated as it all unfolds! For now, expect an active - and slippery - stretch of days to close out the week.

Have a great day!
