A stationary front running along the international border from the western Great Lakes eastward will allow a series of disturbances to affect the region over the next several days. We’ll see rain, snow, and a wintery mix tonight and again Wednesday through Friday as the frontal boundary wobbles north and south alternatively allowing for cool or warm air to work its way into the region. It’s looking sloppy.

We should see snow accumulation a dusting to 2″ in our area. Lows will be around 30 with southwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.

There is a penumbral lunar eclipse occurring tomorrow morning at 5:39AM. This is a partial eclipse, but, given that we’ll be at the eastern edge of it, we won’t be able to see the maximum. Plus it’s going to be cloudy, so you can stay in bed…
