We're enjoying a brief lull in our increasingly active weather pattern today as a series of systems looks to be lining up, bringing chances for snow across our area this week. The system that brought roughly one to three inches Sunday evening has moved on to the east and in its wake, we have plenty of cloud cover hanging around today with the possibility of some breaks of sunshine. High temperatures will be in the lower 30s with a brisk southeast breeze that will be more noticeable in the afternoon.
Light snow will begin to develop late in the afternoon west of I-35 as our next storm system approaches from the west. That light snow will spread eastward across the area during the evening commute, meaning streets and highways may end being a bit slippery. Snowfall totals are expected to be in a two to four-inch range in most of the area with brisk south winds and temperatures hovering in the upper 20s.
Skies will clear off early Tuesday and it looks like a bright, but blustery day with sunshine and high temperatures will be in the lower 30s. Temperatures will slowly drop off during the day, falling back to the mid-20s in the afternoon.
A weak storm system will move in late Tuesday night, bringing a chance for an inch or so of snowfall early Wednesday and generating gusty northwest winds. High temperatures Wednesday will be in the lower 20s with wind chill values in the single digits.
We'll have to deal with some frigid sunshine Thursday with high temperatures in the single digits to lower teens in the area and wind chills levels will be below zero across the area.
The largest storm system to impact our area this week looks to move in for Friday. We'll have a chance to see six or more inches of snowfall from that system with snowfall starting early in the morning and then winding down late Friday night. High temperatures will be in the mid-20s which is typical for this time of the year.
The weekend looks quieter, but colder with sunshine likely both days, but high temperatures will be in the single digits and teens and overnight lows may be below zero.
