We will start out the week off with sunshine and seasonable temperatures.
After a weekend stuck in the clouds, brighter times are ahead. It’s to be expected since November is one of our cloudiest months in the year.
A powerful midwest storm will push a cold front through the region Tuesday into Wednesday. We need to watch the possibility of an area of low pressure developing along the front. If that happens, forecast rainfall duration and amounts may need to be increased.
Across the Plains, the first blizzard of the season is in the cards. Locally, damaging wind gusts are possible Tuesday into Wednesday. Once that storm system departs, much cold air arrives.
Temperatures go from 60 degrees on Wednesday to the upper 20s by Thursday night. We are forecasting the coldest air mass of the season so far.
The weather will stay active for the remainder of the forecast period. With cold air in place, a wintry mix or snow is possible. A coastal storm will graze the coast Friday and Saturday. The best chance of accumulating snow is west of 128. Another round of light snow is possible Sunday night.
After a break on Monday, another coastal system is possible Tuesday and Wednesday — again, it would be cold enough for some frozen precipitation.
