SkyWarn 13 Forecast

February 9, 2016 Updated: 10:15 AM

I've had a couple of people ask...where is the early spring? That is why you cannot trust a rodent to forecast the weather! But, in actuality we are just in a cold snap, and it looks to hang around for at least the rest of the week. A more arctic air mass has moved into the area and it will continue to keep the flow from the northwest bringing additional colder air into our area. High pressure will also be in control of the weather pattern this week meaning we can expect some sunshine and no big storms at least through the start of the weekend.

We are definitely in transition with our weather today, still on the western edge of a large trough across the Great Lakes and northeast. This will keep some clouds around, and the chance of scattered flurries through the day. Breaks of sun are possible from time to time, but it's going to be cold, with highs only around 10 above. Factor in a 15 mph breeze, and chill values will be sub zero all day.

High pressure then arrives Wednesday and Thursday. This will bring a nice stretch of mainly sunny weather, but it will stay well below average, with sub zero lows and highs in the single digits and lower teens. On Friday there may be a weak front to the northwest and with some extra clouds, a chance of flurries. Highs will again be in the teens. The front then passes, dropping another shot of arctic air into the state on Saturday. This has the potential to be the coldest day of this stretch, with highs in the single digits to start the weekend, though it will be sunny. The pattern then starts to warm, with a large high shifting to our east, and a milder southwest flow returning Sunday and more likely into early next week. The next front may also be coming into play, with light snow chances during this time.
