If there was a day for schools to be closed this week so people could enjoy the weather it is definitely today according to the National Weather Service.
The forecast for today calls for a mostly sunny day with a high near 44 degrees but it will be the last time we likely see temperatures that warm for the foreseeable future. By the time the sun goes down tonight the forecast calls for a low near 22 on a mostly cloudy night.
One big question mark for this week is what a winter weather system will bring our way on Tuesday. The forecast calls for a cloudy day but also a 60 percent chance of snow likely between 1 and 4 p.m. With a high of only 26 expected and winds blowing between 10 and 14 MPH it could be an interesting day in our area.
Snow could linger into Tuesday night when the low is expected to plummet to around 7 degrees. There is a 30 percent chance of snow at night on what is expected to be a blustery evening. When the sun rises on Wednesday it will not bring much warmth with a high of just 20 degrees expected during the day. Wednesday will not be much colder as the low drops to just 12 degrees.
Snow could return to our area on Thursday when the high is expected to be near just 27 degrees. There is only a 30 percent chance of showers according to the most recent forecast. The low for Thursday night is expected to be close to 13 degrees under a partly cloudy sky.
