End of the Cold; Wet Weekend?

By: Buckey2745 , 10:04 PM GMT on January 29, 2014

What a crazy stretch of arctic weather we just went through. This morning my weather station hit a staggering -14.0° at 4:11am. That hard to really put in to words how cold that is. I didn't get the pleasure of experiencing that, I didn't walk out of the house this morning until it was a balmy 5°.

Finally we're getting to the end of this "polar vortex," as tomorrow morning will be the last morning with lows in the single digits at 6°. There's still a chance that schools could be delayed again tomorrow with below zero wind chills possible, but it'll feel like spring compared to the past few mornings.

This weekend will see our next major system coming across the country at us, which is a track we haven't seen for quite a while with all these clipper systems. Saturday could be a wet one, ending in some snow showers on the backside as a low pressure rides right up the Ohio River:

I think there's the potential for some early morning snow Saturday before the warm air rushes out ahead of the low, but it'll be nothing more than flurries and relatively light. I don't give accumulation much of a chance.

Enjoy this weekend and the first couple days of next week because unfortunately... the cold returns, about a week from now. Early signs point to a very potent southern low that could mean very heavy snow early-mid week followed by sub zero temps once again.

I'll post more later about the potential for post frontal snow Saturday night and next week's return to an active pattern.

Do you think we'll see enough rain to cause some flooding? It probably won't take much, since there's 4 to 6" of snow on top of solidly frozen ground.
