Our weather pattern this week will keep cold temperatures and bring a few opportunities for snow for the Tuscarawas Valley.
After an unseasonably cold start to the day Monday morning, temperatures will actually warm up a bit in the afternoon. Some neighborhoods may see 30° for the afternoon high but most of us will top out in the upper-20s. Clouds will increase for the second half of the day tomorrow as a weak system approaches. This system will bring our first opportunity for snow Monday night into Tuesday.
There is some model contention at this time dealing with the amount of snow and where the highest snowfall will occur. However, there really isn’t a lot of moisture with this system so snow amounts look rather modest. Locally, we’re looking at a 1″ to 3″ for our area.
The timing isn’t ideal. Most of the snow looks to occur Monday night into the wee hours of Tuesday. So, it will likely have an impact on the Tuesday morning commute. I’ll take another look at this Monday morning and have more details for you.
Drier air moving on will bring an end to scattered snow showers Tuesday afternoon and we look to stay dry Tuesday night.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY
A series of disturbances will move through the region and bring several off-and-on snow chances during this period. The next will come on Wednesday and Wednesday night bringing back the potential for snow showers and accumulating snow. Occasional snow showers are likely through the rest of the work week.
Unfortunately, an active weather pattern looks to persist through next weekend. Canadian low pressure will mainly set the stage for below-normal cold through the weekend.
Temperatures profiles from the National Blend of Models indicates seasonably cold temperatures this week. After a very cold weekend, temperatures look to rebound early next week.
I’ll have an update tomorrow morning with better details for the snow expected Monday night. Be safe out there.
