We’ve actually got a fairly quiet week coming up across the region, and we should melt quite a bit of the snow that’s out there.
High pressure builds into the region today as yesterday’s storm continues to move into southeastern Canada. We’ll have a mild day, but cooler air will filter in, with Tuesday and Wednesday turning out much cooler than today. Still we’ll have temperatures above freezing during the daylight hours, so the snowpack that’s been in place for over a week now will gradually start to dwindle as the strong March sun also goes to work on it.
By late week, the high slides offshore, allowing milder air to move back in. By Friday, another storms system heads into the Great Lakes. This one looks like it will be mainly rain around here. In fact, we should be quite mild, with temperatures well into the 50s on Friday.
We’ll cool down a little on Saturday behind the system, then high pressure builds in next Sunday, making for a chilly St. Patrick’s Day.
