First Flurries

Received our first flurries yesterday! While it was extremely short and nothing more than flurries, it counts!

This was the result of a powerful systems that built up off the east coast and pulled down some serious cold air. Believe the high yesterday didn’t break 40F. A slight breeze made it feel even cooler.

Looking forward, things look to warm up a bit, but not enough to put the coat away. By the end of the week temps may approach 60, but nights will still be chilly. Area should be dry for the week as a large zone of high pressure takes over the nation’s midsection. Come this weekend a interesting storm is shaping up. Could get some rain before a possibility of some snow behind it. If snow would happen it would be light as most of the precip would be out of the way by the time temps are low enough.

That system looks reminiscent of a winter storm though. Developing out of Texas, sucking up some Gulf moisture, and tilting over the Great Lakes. Believe the only thing we are missing is the cold air in place and maybe if the low would track further east. Should be something to watch if this pattern hold together.
