THE WEATHER DISCO:
The large domw of arctic high pressure will slide to the east today…taking the real cold air with it…at the same time a small piece of the southwest low will scream out over Texas and the lower Mississippi valley…well to our south…ice in Texas…rain in the lower Mississippi valley…just some clouds for us…then the main low will start to lift out…not looking very impressive for us…but still a watcher at this stage of the game… a light mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow developing Friday night…maybe even late Friday night…into early Saturday morning…quickly kicking to all rain Saturday as temps get above freezing…temperatures during this whole event will be marginal at best for winter weather. Then as the system slides by to the east we may see a little light, limited snow Saturday night into early Sunday morning…then in with another large dome of arctic high pressure for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday…more cold high pressures behind that one. My only real weather concern is the shot of a strong ice storm…Saturday…north of a line from Quincy, Carlinville and Springfield…that will also cover Chicago…so if traveling to the north…lets stay up to date.
