DISCUSSION:

While Monday was the coldest day since Christmas, the sunshine did make it feel rather pleasant! We have a clear, calm night ahead of us, and that means a colder start to your Tuesday. We drop well below freezing, with lows ranging from the upper teens to mid 20's.

Tuesday begins with plenty of sunshine, but that will become filtered through the day as a weak weather system slips just offshore. There is not much moisture with this low, but some parts of the Southwest Interior may see some light snow Tuesday afternoon. We are expecting little if any accumulation.

We should be in between weather systems Wednesday, so more chilly sunshine is in the forecast. Clouds increase late in the day, and we have another chance of a few rain/snow showers Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Again, not much moisture is involved, so no accumulation is expected.

Friday will start with some sun, but we will see the clouds increase, and a chance of rain or snow in the afternoon. We should see rain or snow on Saturday as a cold front moves through from the northwest followed by snow showers on Sunday. It's too early for estimate accumulations, but it's something to keep an eye on as we approach the weekend.

Although temperatures will moderate slightly by early next week, it looks like temperatures will remain below normal through the end of the month.
