The "clipper craze" continues with another round of light snow possible tonight.

Tonight: Flurries and areas of light snow. Snowfall from a dusting to 1 inch.

Lows: Mid 20s to near 32 degrees | Wind: S 5-10 mph

Tuesday: Partly cloudy with seasonable temperatures. A few flurries late at night.

Highs: Middle 40s | Wind: NE 5-10 mph

Wednesday: Becoming partly cloudy.

Highs: Middle 40s | Wind: N 5-15 mph

Day to day pattern changes will continue this week. But there are no indications any system will be strong nor highly impactful to the area during the next few days. Tonight’s forecast is a case in point. Another fast moving clipper system will pass overhead. Light snow or flurries will develop and produce a dusting to perhaps 1 inch of new snow. Another, weaker system will affect the area late tomorrow night and may produce some flurries.

High pressure will control the weather during the middle of the week providing partly cloudy skies and seasonable temperatures. By Friday, the pattern will change again. We think Friday will be a cloudy and cool day. We will also keep our eye on computer models during the next few days. One of the mainline models we follow is suggesting an area of low pressure may move up the coast on Friday morning. We have included a 30% chance of morning showers. Whether or not that feature actually develops, we still expect a slow warming trend to begin over the weekend.
