STREAMING NOW: Watch Now

Snowy week ahead

From mostly quiet weather this winter, to a whole week of snow!

Posted: Jan 17, 2021 10:49 PM

For a good portion of this winter, our weather has been
relatively quiet. This is because of the position of the jet
stream. The jet stream is what steers weather systems. It has
been to our south for much of this winter, pushing weather
systems to our south.

Now, the direction has changed. The jet stream is now directly on
top of us, driving weather systems in from the west. This is why
we are going to see an active week ahead. This is more typical
for winter in our area.

Lake effect snow continues tonight with only a light
accumulation. Then the jet stream will push a weak area of low
pressure into our area overnight and early Monday. The snow ends
Monday afternoon with again a light accumulation.

Another low pressure system is directed into our area by the jet
stream for Tuesday. Snow will linger into Wednesday. Overall,
just a few inches is expected.

Another weather system arrives Thursday with more snow. The snow
continues through Friday as lake effect bands develop.

Eventually, we dry out by next weekend as the jet stream once
again drops to the south. Also, high pressure moves in for
Saturday and Sunday with drier air.
