As low pressure heads to our northeast into the St. Lawrence Valley, it will drag a cold front southward through our area tonight. Colder air will spill southward, and as temperatures drop below freezing, anything that is wet tonight could be icy for Monday morning’s commute. In terms of snowfall, we’re not anticipating much more than a dusting to an inch, but an inch or two is possible over the Tug Hill tonight.
After a few lingering flurries Monday morning, skies should brighten through the afternoon. Temperatures will struggle to reach 30, but fortunately, winds will be light, so wind chills won’t be much of a problem. Winds are forecast to increase from the southwest Monday night, so in spite of clear skies, temperatures should hold in the 20s.
After a bit of a cool down Monday, all signs point to a significant warm-up for the middle of the week. There has been some question as to when we would see a return of rain to our area. As of later Sunday, it appears as though the best chance of rain won’t be until very late in the work and school week. Temperatures are forecast to remain well above normal right through the week and into next weekend.
