Weekly Outlook: February 28 – March 6, 2022

While there aren’t any big storms on our horizon, the upcoming week won’t exactly be quiet either.

We start off on a sunny but rather chilly note today with high pressure in control. As the high slides off to the east, temperatures will moderate a bit on Tuesday, but an Alberta Clipper will move through at night, with a few snow or rain showers likely. It pulls away early Wednesday, but another weak system quickly follows for Wednesday night into early Thursday with a few more rain or snow showers expected. High pressure then builds in for late Thursday into Friday with dry and cold weather once again.

By Saturday, the high will slide off to the east and a warm front will approach the region, with moderating temperatures. This is where things could get complicated. Low pressure will head into the Great Lakes, whie high pressure builds into Quebec. This may prevent that warm front from actually moving through the region, keeping us chilly for Saturday night and Sunday. Meanwhile, moisture will start to stream into the region ahead of that warm front. This could result in a messy mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and/or rain. It’s still far too early to try and pin down any details, but for now, Sunday looks like it could be messy.

The models are starting to show the potential for a messy weekend. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
