Cold enough for snow flurries or brief snow showers….Get ready for quite a shock to the system this week! An arctic blast of cold air is moving in, which could cause a few snow flurries or brief snow showers to develop early this week. On Monday, we’ll need a coat most of the day as a strong cold front moves in from the north. High temperatures will only rise into the upper 30s and lower 40s. As that front ushers in cold, blustery winds, moving over relatively warmer bay waters, some folks could see a few snow flurries or brief bay effect snow showers late in the day on Monday.  A few snow flurries/showers are also possible early Tuesday morning. Right now, little to no accumulation is expected, but we’ll continue to keep an eye on it for you. Otherwise, on Monday and Tuesday, expect clouds and sun. Most areas will not get out of the upper 30s by Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday, high temperatures will be back in the upper 40s. Rain moves in by Friday.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Chilly. Low temperatures in the low and mid 30s. Winds: N 10-15 mph.

Monday: Clouds and Sun. Slight Chance of Snow Flurries/Snow Showers (20%). Cold and windy. High temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Winds: N/NW 15-20 mph, with higher gusts.

Tuesday: Clouds and Sun. AM Snow Flurry/Snow Shower (20%). Cold and windy. High temperatures in the upper 30s. Winds: N 15-25 mph.
