Arctic Blast Moves in For the Weekend 2/9/12

Winter returns with a bang for this weekend!

So if you've been wondering where winter is, well it's on it's way!

As we get into Friday a cold front will be moving into the region. Not only that, but behind that front is a very strong area of Arctic High pressure (moving in from Canada.) 

 As that front moves through overnight into early Saturday morning, we could get a brief shot to see some snow flurries. Looking at the graphic here is what we are looking at. But once again, it won't be accumulating. A light dusting at most can probably be expected.



So what does that leave us with, well temperatures this weekend will not be getting above the mid 30s!

Here's a look at the Arctic high moving in, and with the pressure gradient between the high and low, well we are looking for some very windy conditions, meaning get ready for a blustery weekend!

So although we are getting this shot of real winter like temperatures, it will be short lives as highs on Monday return to the 40s. And why won't stay that cold? Well that Arctic high will continue dipping to the south, and eventually move eastward. Bringing in a return flow from the south. That will help our temperatures return to around average, and by the middle of the week once again above average.
