Weather Authority Alert: Backdoor cold front drops our region 10° into Tuesday

Weather Authority Alert.

A beautiful weekend of calm warm weather is slowly coming to an end as things are about to change heading into the beginning of the week.

The North Eastern part of the country is in the middle of a large winter storm due to a strong low-pressure system that is expected to drop cities around the great lakes up to 50° below freezing.

That same low pressure system is causing backdoor cold front from the North East, pushing its way into our region, bringing arctic air down dropping us 10° from one day to the next. Mondays expected high is 61°, the that significant drop expecting Tuesdays high to only reach 51°.

The system is expected to move in Monday night causing windy conditions reaching 15-30 mph. 

We are expected to stay dry throughout most of the week with the exception of a western disturbance giving us 10% chances for rain for next weekend. Those chances, however, may dissipate as we get deeper in the week.
