Major Arctic front arrives Monday, but cold air doesn’t last long

I cut a video forecast discussion this afternoon to talk about a big push of Arctic air into the region on Monday, chances of any freezing precipitation behind it, and an early look at St. Jude Marathon and Christmas parade weather next Saturday. Watch below for full details (about 11 minutes long), or skip ahead to get “The Bottom Line.”

The Bottom Line

Say so long to Sunday’s 70s as temperatures fall from the 60s overnight into the 30s by Monday afternoon in the wake of the front that will move through around dawn Monday. With wind factored in, temperatures tomorrow afternoon could feel up to 40 degrees colder than this afternoon! Showers are also expected off and on Monday into Monday night but no frozen precipitation is expected as lows remain in the mid 30s Tuesday morning.

Forecast temps as of 6am Monday as an Arctic fromt slices through the region. Temps near 60 will be found just ahead of the front, while the mercury plummets into the 30s not far behind it! Click for larger image.

An unsettled week ahead with moderating temperatures and rain chances, especially towards the latter half of the week. Highs will be back near 60 by Wednesday with clouds keeping lows above normal. By next weekend, a few showers are still possible Saturday morning for the marathon, but one mid-range model dries us out by then. Temperatures in the morning will likely be in the upper 40s to lower 50s with highs near 60 Saturday afternoon. No freezing temps for the first round of Christmas parades next weekend!
