Rain showers continue through the remainder of Sunday evening as low pressure passes to our southeast. Showers won’t end until late tonight. We continue to stay on the mild side through the overnight as warm southwest air spills in… but all of that will change by Monday morning. Although the kids may be on their spring break, the start of the work week won’t be feeling very spring-like.
A strong cold front creates major changes come Monday, mainly in the form of cooler temperatures and wind. Rain and snow showers will be around as well. During the Monday AM commute rain showers will transition over to snow before easing by midday. We’re not expecting any significant accumulation from this. For the rest of Monday we’re looking at only a few passing snow showers, but very high winds- upwards of 30mph at times. That will make the already cool air feel even colder. We suggest dressing for weather that will feel just below the freezing mark.
Come Monday night those winds will still be going strong, mainly out of the west/northwest. The alignment will create a good set up for lake effect snow showers through Tuesday morning. Given that the winds will still be strong and the snow heavy at times, the Tuesday AM commute will likely be slow going for those under the lake effect snow showers.
The strong early April sun will likely disrupt the organization of snow showers during the daytime on Tuesday, but those under the most persistent snows may have up to 8” by the time things taper off. Drier air should cut off any leftover showers come Wednesday, and winds will finally ease as high pressure moves in on Thursday and lifts our temperatures back to seasonable levels.
