... High pressure builds into the region for Monday night and Tuesday. Another series of weak waves crosses Wednesday night through Friday. High pressure for the end of the week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 1230 PM Monday...
Still a few lingering light snow showers across northeastern zones this afternoon in upslope flow behind a departing disturbance. These should start to taper off later this afternoon/evening, with gradual clearning taking hold as high pressure continues to nudge eastward into the region. As with previous forecast, kept overnight lows slightly below guidance with light surface winds/clear sky expected.
High pressure remains in control for Tuesday with dry and mild conditions.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... As of 245 PM Monday...
The period starts with surface high pressure, mainly zonal/WNW flow overhead, and clear, dry conditions. Mainly cirrus cover overspreads the area from the West starting early Wednesday ahead of the next system. Clouds should be high enough to allow for some radiational cooling Wednesday morning, with most areas reaching below freezing. Sheltered valleys will likely dip into the 20's, with values near 20 possible across the higher elevations.
Wednesday, light winds turn southerly, eventually southeasterly, as a shortwave trough aloft approaches. Precipitation along the cold front arrives from the by the evening, crossing the CWA through Thursday morning. While temperatures will be favorable for snow showers across the higher elevations, moisture content with this system remains low, with total QPF generally <0.2". So, snowfall amounts would be generally light, and no flooding issues are expected. The shortwave amplifies as it enters the area, however, meaning mesoscale forcing could be potentially stronger, so will have to keep an eye on this system to see how much moisture it could possibly utilize. Ultimately a maximum of a couple inches is possible with an over-achieving snow shower, but unlikely at this juncture.Showers linger through much of Thursday until the upper level trough kicks East by the end of the day. Temperatures climb into the 40's and 50's area-wide, so any snowfall that does fall during the morning will melt off anyway. Some sleet or freezing rain/drizzle may occur Thursday morning, but there doesn't exist enough confidence at this stage to include it in the forecast.LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... As of 250 PM Monday...As the previous shortwave trough axis rotates out to the Atlantic, another wave comes quickly on its heels, rotating down the western Great Lakes through the mean long-wave trough overhead. This wave would be even more moisture-starved than the last, however, so expecting mainly an uptick in upslope shower activity Friday morning and a reinforcement of cooler, below-average temperatures for the end of the work week. A couple tenths of additional snowfall is possible across highest ridges and peaks.High pressure rules the roost through the weekend with temperatures trending up, especially for Sunday, with temperatures likely reaching the 60's across most areas. The next system and rain chances return by Monday.
