*FOUR STORM SYSTEMS TO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION*
Here’s a look at four systems the Pinpoint Weather Team will be tracking for the Valley over the next week.
1. Tonight through Saturday morning
A cold front will clear the area Friday evening. This will allow much colder air to sink into the region. Rain showers are expected through the evening Friday and will change to snow as temperatures fall. Expect scattered snow overnight into early Saturday. A trace to 1.5″ accumulation is expected and brief white-out conditions are possible at times. The cold air pulled into the area by this storm will persist through the weekend with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s.
The next storm system to impact the area arrives Monday. It does not look like a complete wash-out of a day, but we will be tracking the risk for snow showers to develop early in the day. As temperatures rise into the 40s, any snow that is in the area will begin mixing over to rain.
Right on the heals of the storm system that moves through Monday will be another quick hitting system. This storm will have the potential to bring a mix of rain and snow early in the day, followed by some afternoon rain showers with highs in the lower to middle 40s. This storm system pulls away from the area Tuesday night, but not before the rain mixes back over to a little snow
A fourth storm system arrives on Thursday. Models have been hinting at a wave of low pressure moving through the Great Lakes region and bringing rain showers to the area. This storm system would pull in some warmer air with highs in the 50s and, at this time, only rain showers are expected.
The 7-day forecast overall shows a warming trend. Highs are expected to be in the 30s for the weekend, lower 40s for the start of the workweek, and rising to the 50s by the end of next week. For the current 7-day forecast CLICK HERE
