After an exciting week and a half of weather, the next few days are going to be rather calm. High pressure will be in control at the surface through the end of the weekend. However, today will see a good bit of cloud cover and temps will remain on the chilly side as a pesky northwesterly wind will keep a lid on the temperatures. We might see intermittent sunshine this afternoon, especially in the southern part of the region, as the low pressure system that brought us snow over the past several days moves off well to our east.
As that area of high pressure begins to move east, that northwesterly wind flow will diminish and temperatures will significantly increase for the weekend. Sunshine will persist and above average temperatures are going to have some people longing for spring. It should be a fantastic weekend of spring skiing and snowboarding.
Our next system is slated to move through on Monday. Increased cloud cover late in the day on Sunday will be a prelude to rain showers on Monday. Scattered snow showers on the backside of the system are possible Monday night and Tuesday. This won’t be a big event though.
