Welcome to my first edition of Frosty’s First Look, where I basically take a look at the main weather headlines through the week (Saturday), and then break them up into each region with more detail. So without further ado here it is:
- Seasonal the next day or two before below normal temperatures move in by mid week. Seasonal temperatures should return by the weekend.
- Highs 15°+ and lows 10°+ below normal are possible
- Accumulating snow, especially in the higher elevations of the Appalachians and near the Great Lakes Monday night into Tuesday.
- Seasonal the next two or three days before below normal temperatures move in for the middle of the week. Seasonal values return by the weekend.
- Below freezing lows move in by mid week.
- Mainly dry, as high pressure dominates
- Below normal temperatures Mon-Wed before ridging pattern brings above normal temperatures in by the weekend, mainly in the western Midwest
- Accumulating snowfall possible near Great Lakes
- Below normal temperatures early in northern and central Plains before above normal values move in by mid to late week
- Southern Plains to remain below normal for most of mid-week
- Wet weather and potential for thunderstorms possible by the weekend
- Above normal temperatures should continue, although eastern region could see slight cool down Monday or Tuesday
- Significant snowfall across Montana today and tomorrow
- Mainly dry as above normal temperatures persist
Pacific Northwest & California:
- Above normal temperatures early on will give way to seasonal values late
- A disturbance during the mid-week will bring rain/snow to Pacific NW. More significant snowfall possible during weekend, especially in higher elevations
