More snow, Arctic air on the way

February 6th, 2016

weather 2.6.16 (Mobile)

It looks like the next week or so will see at least two and possibly three bouts with snow, but none of these look to be very significant, on the order of possibly two to four inches late Monday and Monday night and less than that about Wednesday and again about Friday. The major news for next week will be the shot of Arctic air coming in over next weekend. This looks like it will be the coldest air of the season so far as temperatures on Sunday night/Monday morning (2/14 – 2/15) tumble to around -5° in the usual coldest spots. See the attached GFS temperature guidance for reference.
