Outlook Now to Late FebruaryFebruary 4th, 2013 at 9:42 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
NOW (FEBRUARY 4) TO TUESDAY (FEBRUARY 12)………..
Clipper will pass Tuesday with some snow showers, mainly in our northeastern areas. There 1″ or less may accumulate in places, while the rest of the area see little to nothing. Winds will be gusty from the southwest & west up to 30 mph with highs largely in the 30s. Wednesday looks partly cloudy with highs largely in the 30s.
Cold front will pass Thursday with a wave of some showers with temperatures climbing to near 43, then falling later in the day.
Storm system with lots of wind & widespread rainfall (right now 0.50-1″ of rainfall) & some thunder will arrive Sunday & exit by Monday morning. After highs in the 50s Sunday & lows in the middle 40s Sunday night, we will fall Monday after a morning high in the middle 40s. Monday night lows will drop into the lower to middle 20s.
Highs Tuesday looks to be in the middle 30s with lows in the middle to upper teens.
WEDNESDAY (FEBRUARY 13) TO TUESDAY (FEBRUARY 26)………….
Need to watch next Wednesday-Thursday for snow. Looks like it may begin as rain/snow mix & transition to snow with accumulation possible. Behind it, ARCTIC AIR will roar in with highs only in the teens to around 20 & lows near 0.
This storm is the best potential of significant accumulating snowfall (at least the way it looks right now) to February 26 & perhaps the month of February.
A clipper around February 16-17 & another around February 19 may bring some minor-accumulating snowfall to the area on the order of 0.5-2″ (at least the way it looks right now). It will stay quite cold up to February 22 with highs in the teens & 20s, though there are signs of a big spring-like warm-up to end February.
