Weather blog: Colder, drier air is on the way with more snow by midweek


On Monday, most areas saw high temperatures reaching the 1950s (that’s 10 to 15 degrees above average!) as southerly winds were gusting from the south, bringing milder air past a cold front that had cleared its way.

The remaining showers will change to flurries as cooler air enters.

A few flurries and scattered snow showers are still possible overnight until early Tuesday. The best chance of accumulation would be on higher ground.

Finally, the drier air prevails for Tuesday. Temperatures will only hit the low 30s on Tuesday with a mix of cloud and sun. A few scattered showers cannot be excluded, in particular in the north of the country.

The next weather system to impact the region will be Wednesday, when some light snow is possible. Right now it looks like a minor event with a snow cover of up to two inches.

Light snow and flurries break out during the morning hours, but overall minor impacts are expected at this time.

Flurries will persist in the afternoon, particularly in southern and eastern areas.
