We'll close out the last week of February very similar to this past week. Showers and fair temperatures will be the main headline early week before a shot of cold air and scattered snow showers arrive late Wednesday and into Thursday. As for today, showers will increase this afternoon and overnight before clearing out for much of Tuesday. High's today will be near 50 with temperatures tomorrow in the lower 60's.
As for the future radar, moderate showers arrive this afternoon and continue overnight. By Tuesday morning, most showers should be to the east with cloudy skies for the day. For Wednesday, another system arrives bringing showers and the potential for snow showers on the tail-end. Just like this past week, the timing of cold air and how much precipitation is associated will dictate snow outlooks. For the time being, stay focused on the rain and cold air to follow with very limited accumulation expected across the region.
Though heavier showers are expected to arrive this afternoon and evening, flooding concerns remain out of the discussion as we push into Tuesday. Overall amounts look to be upwards of an inch before drier air works in tomorrow. A secondary system works in for Wednesday providing another half inch before sunnier skies and cooler air work in Friday and the weekend.
With another active pattern expected this week, be sure to tune in for updates here and on social media. We will continue to eye any snow chances this week, but for now, stay dry this afternoon.
