One More Rain/Snow Mix Before A Quick Warmup

The next seven days ahead

Sunshine with some clouds as a weak clipper passed on by(albeit no snow fell at all) and temperatures only reached 30 at Philly International Airport after a low of 21. We'll be in that same ballpark overnight with a partly cloudy sky and lows in the lower 20s which means another day mixed with sunshine and then late day clouds as highs approach 30.

The clouds will be in advance of our next system slated to come through overnight Monday into Tuesday; temperatures will be hovering around the freezing mark so we will see some light snow to break out before sunrise, but as milder air aloft wedges in it will partially melt the snowflake. All hope is not lost though if you are a snow lover since temperatures at the surface will be at or below freezing it will allow the partially melted snowflake to refreeze before reaching the surface(hence sleet, BUT if there is full melting it would then be freezing rain). By the afternoon as the lower levels of the atmosphere will warm up and just provide plain old rain, but not before maybe an inch or two of frozen precipitation(further north and west may see a few inches of snow).

Now behind this system you'd think we'd get again, right? Not this time! Come Wednesday we'll be in the lower 50s with a weak piece of energy pushing through to provide rain by midday, but Thursday we'll be in the middle 50s ahead of a cold front for Friday. Don't worry as it will be around 60 so it will just be rain with a chance of thunderstorms too! If you think Spring's here to stay by next week there are longer range models that push the cold back in to end off the month of February.....and with a stormy pattern still taking place(thanks to a negative NAO) March may come in as a lion.
