Drier air will build in Monday night, effectively putting an end to any of the already limited light rain/snow showers, flurries, drizzle and freezing drizzle. Lows will be in the teens, 20s and low 30s.

Tuesday is shaping up to be mostly cloudy/partly sunny. Dry conditions through midday will be followed by the increasing risk for a few scattered rain and snow showers Tuesday afternoon and evening. Highs will generally be in the 30s and 40s.

Leftover rain/snow showers Tuesday night into Wednesday morning are expected to taper with highs Wednesday afternoon ending up in the upper 30s and low 40s.

More active weather looks to develop Wednesday night and Thursday as a clipper system works through. This will bring some snow, stronger winds and eventually, much colder temperatures.

A strong northwesterly flow will be conducive for not only developing lake effect snow, but it will also help to usher in significantly colder air than we’ve gotten accustomed to recently.

Temperatures on Friday won’t manage to do any better than the teens to near 20 degrees.

This should be just the beginning of a more winter-like pattern setting up. We’ll need to keep a close eye on a potential winter storm with widespread impacts this weekend.​
