However, we don’t really notice much relief from the cold until the weekend when we break back above freezing. We’ll briefly touch the 40s next Monday!

The warm up is brief! Take advantage of these warmer days for outdoor plans or any errands you might have. A N wind kicks back in on Monday afternoon as our next cold front drops in. This brings us back to the teens on Tuesday:

Although we have an active forecast where our temperatures are concerned, there isn’t much in the way of moisture this week... a few systems skirt the area but don’t provide much of a chance for meaningful rain or snow locally. We’ll keep an eye on the chance for some light snow showers or flurries Friday night into Saturday mainly N of the Metro with moisture missing us again on Sunday. Right now, no major system are in sight and we’ll likely finish the month on a fairly dry note.
