Tim's Weather World: A smorgasbord of weather

If you include yesterday, by the end of this week we will have seen nearly every conceivable type of weather.  Freezing rain fell yesterday and today we will deal with fog and drizzle.  Showers will be spotty today and more numerous tomorrow with even a few thunderstorms followed by rain changing to snow on Wednesday.  It looks likely that we will see a record high tomorrow (59° is the record set in 1914) in the 60s before temperatures come crashing down on Wednesday, falling from the 40s early in the morning to the 20s by evening.

 

The Storm Prediction Center has a portion of our area outlooked for a slight risk of severe weather. Strong thunderstorms are possible south of the city later tomorrow.

Another round of Arctic air arrives Wednesday.  Snow lovers shouldn’t get too excited though. The GFS model is squeezing out just over an inch of snow by Saturday morning.   There is a chance for snow Wednesday, flurries Thursday and light snow late Friday into Saturday. So far this season we have seen a scant 2.9″ or 16″ below average.
