A weak ridge of high pressure brought us a little sunshine for the start of the work week and with temperatures approaching 40 it was a good day to clean up from Sunday's snowfall. The high is expected to move off to the northeast on Tuesday setting up a light onshore flow that promises to transport increasing amounts of moisture into our region. I think we'll see a little sunshine but the trend will be for increasing cloudiness. Another storm system will then take control of our weather on Wednesday as it moves into the Ohio River valley dragging a warm front our way. Snow should break out Wednesday morning as the front approaches and then possibly change to rain as warmer air attempts to move in. An area of low pressure is going to form on the front and this will do its best to hold off the warm air and keep the precipitation falling as snow. Right now it's impossible to say whether or not the change will take place and this is critical for determining snowfall totals. The potential does exist for a foot of wet heavy snow and the farther south you are the better the chances for rain. The storm will wind down Wednesday night with more light snow lingering into Thursday. By Friday we should be left with cloudy skies and perhaps a few snow showers.
