Yet another busy week of weather is ahead across the United States overall. From the cold to more snow, here are five things the WeatherOptics team will be closely tracking this week.

Southern Snow?

As an Arctic front works southward, it may lead to light snow from Texas all the way through the Carolinas. While there is still a moderate amount of uncertainty, the chances for snow are increasing, especially from Texas through northern Mississippi and Louisiana and into the Tennessee Valley. Now in the other states, while snow is possible, it is not guarenteed.

Light Snow Starts Week in Northern Tier

Portions of the Northern Tier of the U.S. will also get in on the snow to start the week. Snow showers are forecast across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest this Sunday. They will then move into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley as well as a small potion of the Central Plains on Monday. This snow will be light, but it’s just another snow event for this part of the country.

More Cold This Week

Following a brief January thaw last week, another round of Arctic air is intruding the U.S. again this one. One shot has moved in but a second, more severe one will enter the picture starting Monday. There is relief on the way by the weekend as a more prolonged thaw takes place.

Northeast Snowstorm?

Yet another potential snowstorm is possible midweek, and may bring snow to the Northeast. There are so many uncertainties, however, regarding this forecast whether the storm will bring major impacts or heads out to sea. One of the main factors is the exact track of the coastal low, which will likely develop.

More California Rain

As a pattern change takes place at the end of the week, a significant round of rain and mountain snow may move in beginning on Thursday and continuing through the weekend. While this rain is welcome and much-needed, we are concerned about the risk for more mudslides.

We’ll have an article on this coming midweek.
