Suchan Says: Another Cold Week!

The pattern is relentless with yet more Arctic cold ready to settle into the area.  One look at the midweek pattern in this chart tells the story.  Look at the huge pool of frigid air in Canada!

Brutally cold in Canada this week! We’ll see our temperatures tumble too even though core of the coldest air stays up north (this image is for Wednesday)

Other than a few random flurries Wednesday, the bulk of the week looks dry.  Next system arrives late Friday through Saturday of next weekend.  The early look suggests a track too far north for big snow in our area (unless we see a sudden model shift south in the track).  Friday looks cloudy with a slight chance early of a little freezing mist then just sprinkles or mist the rest of the day and windy.

Saturday may start with some rain but very cold air begins to surge in across the area.  Rain would change to sleet or pockets of snow through the day.  The big question is just how much moisture is left behind Saturday once the cold air arrives.  Some early indications suggest moisture is in the process of decreasing by the time good quality cold is in place for a good snow.  Low end accumulations appear possible in northern Missouri.

A bigger snow would be found in Nebraska to Iowa if this track remains.  Stay tuned.
