The National Weather Service has issued a
WINTER STORM WARNING for Jefferson and Lewis counties until 2 am Monday.
HIGH WIND WARNING for Jefferson and Lewis Counties from 2 am Monday until 5pm Monday
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for St. Lawrence County until 8 am Monday.
WIND ADVISORY for St. Lawrence County for Monday at 4 am until 11 pm Monday
FLOOD WATCH for Jefferson and Lewis Counties for Monday at 7am til Tuesday at 6 pm
Most of us start the evening/early night with a period of relief. More wintry mix precipitation blasts the area one last times before rain makes its way into the region. Temperatures will be in the low 30s starting off. However, they will increase overnight and the wintry mix precipitation will turn into rain. This will all happen after midnight. Winds kick up at 20-30 mph out of the southeast with gusts around 50 mph. This too, will happen well after midnight, when the WIND WARNING takes effect at 2 am. The Black River valley will be the bulls eye for the winds as it will act as a funnel. Patchy fog will also be an issue overnight.
The morning starts off relatively dry for most of us. Rain showers will be peppered around the region. The showers will be heavy at times as we introduce the FLOOD WATCH to the forecast. Temperatures will be in the low 40s. Winds will be east 20-30 mph with gusts around 50 mph. High winds, in combination with the rain and remaining ice (on untreated surfaces) will make things slippery for our commutes - walking or driving.
More showers head into the area with localized heavy showers. There will also be chances for thunder and possible lightning. Winds will continue to be east at 20-30 mph with gusts near 60 mph. Temperatures will be in the mid 40s. Travel will be tough due to high winds and low visibility in heavier downpours.
Winds will start to calm as we head toward the expiration of the HIGH WIND WARNING out of the southeast at 10-15 mph. Showers however do not die down, and are still heavy in localized area. High temperatures for the day will top out in the upper 40s to low 50s around the region. No relief in sight just yet
Outlook on the Week:
Temperatures start below average. However, mid-week brings in warmer temperatures but not without rain.
