Mild air to push temperatures above average next week
The Arctic air that has gripped the area over the last several days, will begin to overstay its welcome as it’ll retreat back north being replaced by mild Pacific air heading into next week.
High pressure will move overhead through the weekend leading to quiet and sunny weather. The Arctic cold will still be around on Saturday with high temperatures in the single digits.
The high will push southeast of the area on Sunday with winds switching to the south bringing in the mild air allowing temperatures to climb into the upper teens to lower 20s which is closer to average.
The mild air will continue to build Monday and throughout next week with high temperatures generally in the 30s and night lows running mild also in the 20s and 30s.
A couple storms look to cross the region in the Tuesday through Thursday timeframe. However, the precipitation type (rain, snow, wintry mix) is uncertain due to the track of each not set in stone and the temperatures which will play a big role in what type of precipitation falls. Expect details to be ironed out as it gets closer.
