A Few Shots of Cold Air and Snow Chances
The reason this happened was because we had an occluding low to the north of us during the middle of the week, which means that the same pattern is occurring at all levels of the atmosphere. It was positioned in such a way that it allowed a 'wall' of warm air to move into our area, which pushed us into the 50's.
A cold front will move through our area Sunday evening, which will bring us some snow showers. After the front moves out, a mid-level trough will allow for some lighter snow through Monday, with more cold air to move in afterwards. This will bring our overnights back into the single digits, and keep our highs in the teens for most of the work week.
However, by the time we reach Thursday a new pattern sets up that could allow for another warmup to take place! We have chances for sunshine and temperatures back in the upper 20's by Thursday, and then a possibility for the 30's again next Friday.
