The week starts off unsettled, but a warmup is in the way.
A strong cold front will approach the region today, with some showers developing ahead of it. Those showers will continue off -and-on into Tuesday morning before the front finally pushes offshore. It does not look like we’ll have the heavy rain that the models were advertising a few days ago, but any rain will help to continue to put a dent into the drought. Skies start to clear out late in the day as high pressure starts to build in. While temperatures will turn cooler for Tuesday and Wednesday, the core of the cold air will stay off to our west. In fact, some lake-effect snow is possible downwind of the Great Lakes over the next few days. We’ll have temperatures that are below normal, but highs should still be in the 50s. By the end of the week and the weekend, the high slides off to the east, allowing temperatures to moderate to above normal levels for Friday into Sunday.
