For starters cold air is in place for this first wave of snow that moves in this evening (mainly after 8 pm) and continues through early Monday morning. It is a light yet disruptive snow event bringing 1 to 2" to the area by the Monday morning commute.
Then....wave two, which is much more impactful for the area Monday evening through Tuesday. This storm is similar to the other flavors of storms we've experience this winter. Snow followed by a wintry mix then rain. A steadier snow Monday evening will continue overnight into Tuesday. Expect a sloppy morning commute Tuesday morning. A general 3 to 6" (will be the average range for the areas) likely with some higher amounts across higher elevations. Then warmer air gradually moves in Tuesday morning turning the snow to sleet...then frz rain and wrapping up Tuesday evening as rain. A sloppy Tuesday expected. School delays/closing and slick roads. Plan accordingly! Monday and Tuesday has been declared a CBS 21 *Weather Watch Day* as we anticipate disruptions during both Monday and Tuesday morning commutes. School delays/closings are likely.
Following this storm another complex area of disturbed weather heads east come the end of the week. Currently it the setup is trending warmer which means mainly a rain event, but there is a possibility for some snow with this one too. All winter we've been on the warmer side of things. In weather it is all about pattern and so far this snow to rain or ALL rain setup has yet to switch off. All-in-all be prepared for a more active weather pattern over the next couple of weeks with equal chances for snow and rain.
