No Hazardous Weather Anticipated
With all the talk about severe weather and heavy rain last week, Mother Nature is giving us a break for awhile. Speaking of last week’s rain, a new drought monitor has been released:
Latest US Drought Monitor has completely removed our 2 counties from drought after last week's rain. Seems like we should celebrate! ^al pic.twitter.com/oIilB9jSgU

What a breath of fresh air! Hakuna Matata.
Actually Feeling Like Winter
Update: A very small amount of moisture may be enough to produce some flurries or light snow showers tomorrow morning across our area. No accumulations are expected, but make some extra time for your morning commute to be safe.
HRRR Model Loop
The consistency in afternoon highs will help in knowing “what to wear” the rest of this week. It’s kind of like living in a tropical climate with unchanged conditions, except much colder. There will be a good deal of clouds mixed throughout each day, with Saturday being the sunniest.
Another reinforcing shot of cold air arrives late Saturday into Sunday, and there may be just enough moisture to work with to squeeze out some snow showers.
Survey (GFS) Says…
Daytime temperatures on Sunday may warm enough to change the precip over to rain, and then we’ll go back to snow by Sunday night. Little to no accumulation is expected, but hey, this is at least a little more appropriate than 70° weather (although I would choose the latter).
The Monday AM commute shouldn’t be too much of an issue, unless snow showers decide to hang on longer than currently thought (not likely).
While next weekend is beyond any point of forecasting accuracy, models are hinting at a decently formed system developing over the middle of the country that could bring storms and snow to the Midwest. We’ll just have to see if this is make-believe or made a reality.
