- I am noticing this morning a certain amount of freezing drizzle outside that isn’t showing up on the radar screens, and it’s enough to make things just a bit slick for the untreated roads. Other than that, conditions for Saturday should mainly be cloudy as some thin, low-level stratus clouds move across the Great Lakes. With slightly warmer air moving in aloft and some heavy, colder snow on the ground, that will result in some mist or slight fog in the air throughout the day.
- High pressure over much of the interior Eastern United States should keep conditions dry for Sunday and Monday. There’s still a decent amount of moisture in the air, though, so it will remain mostly cloudy; the best chance for some sunshine will be Sunday afternoon.
- A low-pressure storm will arrive in the area Tuesday; we’ll be on the warm side of it as it passes just a bit to our northwest, meaning that the precipitation we’ll get will be in the form of rain. The back end of this event will then swing through on Wednesday evening with some snow showers and a setup that suggests a chance of lake-effect for Thursday.
- For next weekend, conditions appear to favor partly cloudy skies and cool but seasonable conditions as high pressure masses move into the area from both Canada and the Great Plains. The models seem to be diverging quite a bit after that point, especially as far as temperatures go, so it’s still too soon to say whether or not we’ll see snow on Christmas.
