Arctic blast...Big warm up!

An significant arctic front pushed through the area Monday night. There was some precipitation aloft last night, but the air was just too dry for most of the precipitation to reach the ground. Now lows this morning bottomed out in the single digits with a light breeze making wind chills drop into the -5 degree range.

Highs today will only be in the teens and 20's with abundant sunshine. Then later tonight and tomorrow morning, high pressure will settle right over top of us and temperatures will likely be even cold with lows Wednesday morning in the single digits and some below zero.

Wednesday will be a transition day with temperatures Wednesday night primarily remaining in the 20's. A warm front will push through late Wednesday ngiht and the area will rebound into the 50's and 60's. Then on Friday the warm air really surges in and highs Friday will be in the 60's and low 70's around the area.

Friday will likely kick off the more active part of the pattern with a series of storms off the west coast and ejecting into the plains early next week. I think our dry spell will end with some significant precipitation nearby. I think it will remain all rain though.

I will have a new blog tomorrow.
