Rain showers off and on into Tuesday evening
Showers still expected of and on Monday as the bulk of the rain and wintry weather moves into areas north of our viewing region. The rain is not expected to be well organized until the front moves through on Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures will be on the mild side early Tuesday until the passage of the front, then expect a cooler and windy regime to finish out the last half of the week.
As for the cold front, this feature is expected to drive through the region on Tuesday, ahead of the front will be temps in the upper 50s, some rain and around the front is more rain. By the time the front passes through we should see a few flakes flying on the mountains in the afternoon Tuesday. Winds will pick up Tuesday evening and into Wednesday then continue into Wednesday evening. The mercury in the thermometer will be dropping Tuesday afternoon, so expect the highs to be around 1 pm then dip as the day moves along. We call this phenomenon and upside-down temperature day as the high will occur before the normal afternoon time frame. Winds will be on the sporty side, with sustained winds near 25 and gusts near 35 mph.
Dry and chilly conditions are expected through the end of the week with highs in the low to middle 40s. Expect to see plenty of sunshine from Wednesday until Saturday, which is when the next chance for rain is expected. The jury is still out on the timing of the next rain event, some indications are that the rain may hold off until late Sunday, and even then only arrive in the extreme southern tier counties along the North Carolina border.
To be continued… as always.
