Seasonable temperatures have made a return to the region, making for a rather pleasant end to our weekend. It won't last long though as yet another storm system will approach the Capital Region late Monday and into Tuesday morning, bringing a mix of rain and snow at first, transitioning over to all snow on Monday night with some minor accumulations on the order of a few inches by Tuesday morning.
One this weak storm departs and leaves a general 2 to 4 inches across the region, a fresh arctic air mass will move in for the remainder of our work week.
High temperatures will return to below normal levels in the 20's with overnight lows dropping close to 0. This air mass will gradually moderate by the end of the week, with seasonable temperatures returning for the Valentine's Day weekend. A pattern shift could mean even warmer temperatures, potentially well above average, into next week so stay tuned!
