AVERAGE HIGH: 37 AVERAGE LOW: 21

RECORD HIGH: 57 – 2010 RECORD LOW: -2 – 1987

YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 32 LOW: 19 PRECIPITATION: NONE

Weak high pressure will give us a dry day today and it will not be as cold or windy as we experienced over the weekend, high temperatures will be near 40 degrees. We should have mostly sunny skies after early morning cloudiness.

A couple of weak low pressure areas will affect our weather Tuesday into Wednesday morning with a light mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain, accumulations should be around 1-2 inches.

The storm that we have been tracking now looks to be well south and east of our area on Thursday with no precipitation expected.

The coldest air of the season is possible Friday as a piece of the polar vortex will move into the area. Daytime highs will only be in the 20s and overnight lows in the lower teens. Winds will be brisk so wind chills will fall to near zero at times.

Continued dry and quite cold on Saturday.

Another low pressure may give us some snow on Sunday, but we have plenty of time to track this system. At this time any accumulations will be on the lighter side.
