As is often the case, there is a significant warm-up on the back side of a large Arctic high pressure center.  We’ll see high temperatures climb to near 40° in the Sunday-Monday time frame with a good chance of some rain.  That will melt some, but not all of our snow.  After that we’ll see the colder air move back in – thought not as cold as it has been the past couple days.  Here’s the 8-14 day temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center:

You can see colder than average weather is likely from the Great Lakes to North Texas and west to the Pacific Ocean.  Looks like a nice time for warm weather fans to head to Florida.

Here’s a Great Lakes satellite picture.  Arctic air is moving across the Great Lakes creating lake-effect clouds and snow showers.

This broke the previous daily record of 6.0″ set in 1894.  Drone footage of the frozen Chicago RiverSnow in AlabamaCute attempt at making a snowmanHUGE waves
