Mini-Thaw Before Mega-Cold

The next two days will by no means be above-normal, but we get above freezing, and even into the 40s on Friday. We’ll be stuck in the 20s for highs on both Saturday and Sunday as a fresh Arctic air mass attacks. After the very cold weekend, a new wintry threat emerges for President’s Day. Details below.

Forecast Discussion

We start the day mostly cloudy with a few snow flurries before skies become partly sunny for the afternoon. Temperatures will finally struggle to get above freezing.

Friday will be mostly cloudy ahead of an Arctic Express cold front that will whip through the mountains Friday night. Scattered snow flurries will be possible on Friday, Friday night and into first thing on Saturday. Thereafter, it will just be bone-numbing cold, with some of the season’s coldest temperatures. Weekend skies will be mostly clear on Saturday, with some increase in clouds during Sunday.

The next weather system of interest will be will be developing low-pressure tracking eastward out of east Texas Monday and through the eastern Carolinas during Tuesday. Warmer, moist air overrunning the retreating Arctic air will likely result in precipitation breaking-out over our area as early as Monday morning. A variety of precipitation types are possible, with snow likely initially, perhaps giving way to more of a wintry mix or just plain rain by Monday night. It could be messy.
