ACTIVE WEATHER NEXT WEEK
MONDAY: After a dry stretch, the weather turns much more active next week. A storm moving out of the deep south toward the northeast will cross the area Monday into Monday night. Models have been trending wetter with Monday’s storm. However, there’s a chance the event may begin as a wintry mix early Monday in the mountains before transitioning over to a chilly rain. Highs on Monday should climb into the low to mid 40s.
TUESDAY-WEDNESDAY: After Monday’s soaker, we dry out for a day or so, but the active pattern remains in place. Clouds quickly enter Wednesday and depending on the timing, we could have another storm entering the region by late Wednesday night.
THURSDAY: Models are suggesting a significant low pressure system may develop, pushing moisture into the area. While there’s still plenty of time for things to change, several reliable models and their ensembles are hinting at the potential for a significant winter weather event.
