A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
Another weak front is slipping across the state this evening and may touch off isolated showers and storms. The bigger news is the nice air coming in behind this front.
Temps will drop into the upper 50s and low 60s tonight under partly cloudy skies. Watch for some valley fog. Friday looks like another good day with temps reaching the middle 80s.
Saturday turns steamy as readings approach 90 degrees with isolated showers and storms. The threat for storms will increase for Sunday and Monday ahead of a strong cold front that arrives Tuesday.
The air behind this front is very cool with highs in the 70s likely for the middle and end of next week.
