Chilly, dry climate builds for Sunday and Monday




The thaw that we’ve seen over the past few days is history as more seasonable temperatures have returned, according to the National Weather Service.

Arctic high pressure is building over the region. Today’s high will struggle to get into the upper 20s. On Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the picture will be about the same, with highs in the upper 20s.

On Tuesday, a weak clipper system will pass through the region. There is a chance of rain along the coast, otherwise mostly light snow inland. There’s a chance that light snow will continue into Wednesday, although forecast models have that system weakening as it makes its way east.

After that, it’s be cold and dry, with warmer weather arriving for Saturday.
