Approching front brings breezy conditions and mixed rain and snow showers

AdvoCare

Today’s Weather Synopsis…

A warm front associated with a fast-moving clipper system will track across the region this morning with scattered rain and snow showers tapering off. Winds will remain quite gusty ahead of an approaching cold front that will then track through later this afternoon with a few lingering rain showers as temperatures warm, possibly mixing with some graupel or snow showers.

High pressure will briefly build into the region tonight with clearing skies, but clouds will quickly increase again on Tuesday as another disturbance dives southeast out of the Great Lakes. This system will bring precipitation mainly to northern areas with rain possibly changing to some snow late in the day and into the night, especially across the higher terrain. High pressure will return to the region on Wednesday, before a moderating trend slowly develops into late-week with another complex storm approaching by Thursday.
