Light freezing rain, rain and snow this week

We have an interesting weather pattern taking shape over the next seven days.  There’s light freezing rain, rain, warmer temperatures, colder temperatures and snow.  Hopefully this means I can make sure everyone is happy this week :)

First this weekend:

Low pressure is going to move northward tomorrow and by the evening a rain and freezing rain mix will move into Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Ohio.  Right now there are no winter weather warnings or advisories for the Miami Valley  – however there are just to our west.

As the precipitation gets here we’ll see a short duration of a light freezing rain.  Temperatures will begin to rise quickly overnight and the precipitation will change over to all rain by late Sunday night.

Here’s a look at Futuretrac and what we can expect for this event.

As you can see we’ll start off Sunday morning with mainly cloudy skies.  The clouds thicken but we’re still dry by lunchtime.  Around 5pm is when some of the light freezing rain moves into the area.  We’ll see that for a few hours before it changes over to all rain later Sunday evening

Once this system moves north of the area we’re going to be in a mild pattern until late Wednesday.

Highs will be well above the normal for this time of year.  We’ll likely see readings in the upper 50′s on Tuesday.

But remember what goes up must come down.  So yes this warm up will be brief.  Temperatures will tumble for the end of next week and we’ll return to normal winter weather.
