**A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 3 AM until 9 PM Tuesday for the entire area.**
**Expect a general 2-5" and messy driving conditions at times tomorrow.**
Quiet through tonight with another area of high pressure sliding towards us from the west. Winds will settle down overnight, and with a mainly clear sky, lows will be in the single digits and low to mid teens.
The work week is off to a pleasant start but don't get too comfortable, accumulating snow moves in tonight making for two messy commutes Tuesday.
Sunshine to start your Monday with temperatures rising back in the mid 20s this afternoon. Winds will be in the 5-10 mile per hour range. Clouds will begin to increase a little later this afternoon out ahead of the next system that will bring several inches of snow tonight into Tuesday. The extra clouds overnight will help keep our temperatures milder. We should see lows in the upper teens tonight, a big change from the last couple of nights spent in the single digits and colder.
A low pressure system is coming together in the Plains and will be moving into our area tonight. The snow will begin falling tonight leaving us with an inch or two by morning with more snow throughout Tuesday. This means that both the morning and evening commutes may be hazardous due to the snow covered roads and additional falling snow limiting visibility. Winds will be increasing up to 15-20 miles per hour also leading to some issues with blowing and drifting snow. Total accumulation looks to be between 2-5" for much of the area. This will be a quick moving system which means there is a lot of snow potential but since it will be moving through in a hurry, we will not be seeing a widespread major snowfall event. But, even the several inches we are expecting will create issues for travel so take your time and be prepared for a slower drive both in the morning and in the evening tomorrow. We'll see one more near normal day in terms of temperatures with highs in the upper 20s before another blast of colder air invades for the middle of the week.
Once this storm moves out of the area our weather will quickly quiet down once again but it will also be much colder! We'll see a mix of clouds and sunshine for Wednesday with more sun and dry weather through the rest of the work week. Temperatures will be back in the single digits for highs Wednesday and with a breezy wind, it will feel even colder! The good news is the cold air will not be sticking around for long, we'll see another slow warm-up into the weekend.
A few more sub-zero starts can be expected with this colder shot of air, while Thursday brings plenty of sunshine with highs returning to the teens. A milder southwest flow then looks to develop, with variable clouds and sunshine Friday into the weekend. During this time, temperatures look to warm back into the 30s.
