Light Snow Possible Monday

A quiet pattern takes shape for the end of the work week and weekend with another high pressure system building in.

Models now are starting to pick up on a developing low pressure system that will bring us a chance for snow and possible rain on Monday. It is still too far out to say for sure, but currently the trend is for a low pressure system to develop in Oklahoma over the weekend. The low pressure system will then track through mid-Missouri and then into western Illinois. The track will continue northeast into northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

Ahead of this system, temperatures will be warming into the low to mid 30's with a more mild southerly flow in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Temperatures on Monday will also warm into the low 30's ahead of a warm front. With temperatures around the freezing mark as this system approaches, we could see this first start off as rain before a cold front passes and temperatures fall turning this over to snow.

Moisture levels aren't terribly high going into Monday, so as of now we won't see much accumulation, but it's something we will continue to track as we get closer to it!
