After this messy system pushes east of the area temperatures will take a nose dive with highs hanging in the single digits all of next week for the east. Light snow will be possible on Tuesday and Wednesday before we dry out a bit for the end of the week.
It looks like we will have an interesting 36 hours of weather ahead of us. Just about everything looks possible with rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow all in the forecast. Temperatures today will warm with precipitation starting in the west and spreading east. Temperatures will be warm enough out west that rain is expected in the lower elevations with snow in the Hills. Either way only minor accumulation is expected from the precipitation. That wave of energy will continue to progress eastward tonight into Monday dragging up warmer air from the south. We will look for just about everything in the southeast with a window of freezing rain very likely late tonight into early Monday. Through the day Monday plain old rain may fall as surface temperatures warm. Farther north it won’t be quite as warm although we may have some sleet mixing in with the snow as it falls in the Aberdeen area. We are still looking at relatively light precipitation so no real accumulation is likely, we could have a few spots with 1-2 inches of snow but that should be pretty rare. The biggest concern will be the freezing rain threat so keep an eye on KELOLAND-TV through the rest of today and early tomorrow for the latest.
