High pressure will remain in control of our weather through the day today as a major storm system passes well to our south. After a cold day today, and with clear skies and light to calm winds expected overnight, temperatures should be able to drop to near, or slightly below, zero in most spots by Tuesday morning.
Fair weather is expected on Tuesday with temperatures remaining below normal. A weak upper level disturbance passes south of the region Tuesday night, and may be bring some chances for light snow late at night and early Wednesday morning. High pressure builds in to the region, from the north, by Wednesday evening, with fair weather expected through the end of the work week. Temperatures begin a slow moderation trend through this time as well.
Chances for precipitation enter the picture once again by the weekend as a cold front approaches Saturday.
