I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this week is going to be wet. Yesterday’s clear skies and relatively comfortable temperatures are gone. As I write this, certainty in the various models is not particularly high as to when the rain will start today. There is a low system, headed up the coast, that will bring much moisture our way. However, the type of precipitation, rain or snow, is going to depend on the timing of the storm and how much warm air is advected northward.

Our best chance for snow will be tonight, but don’t expect to go sledding tomorrow. Precipitation will be mixed, so any accumulation we get will be very slushy. Further inland of us will see more snow. Rain and snow from this system will stay with us for a while and finally wrap up mid-Wednesday, just in time for another system to arrive on Thursday. More precipitation will continue through to the weekend. Temperatures all week will be in the thirties.
