Tricky Temperature Forecast
Today there is ONE fly in the ointment... cloud cover. Less cloud cover means highs could be in the upper 40s. More cloud cover, and we will be in the lower 40s. Right now, clouds are spreading from north-to-south across the Metro... you can see that from the satellite view below:

Even if the clouds hang around today, we are expecting dry weather. As we head through the day Tuesday, however, things will change. Right now, there is a pair of storms off the West Coast. One is moving into the Pacific Northwest... the other is off the coast of California:

Both of these systems will move into the Central US on Tuesday. In response, our winds will pick up out of the south... it will be breezy and mild... with increasing clouds through the day. A chance of showers is a pretty good bet Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Right now, it looks like we could even hear a rumble of thunder!
Colder air moves in for Wednesday... that could support a brief change-over to snow... but at this point we are not expecting any accumulations! Then the cold temps hang around through the end of the week!
Have a great day!

I was currious as to the thoughts of freezing rain or snow in NC Missouri. i was looking at the models and the soundings from the CMET website show several hours of freezing rain from the NAM and GFS.. do you think there is any chance of sig. icing?
There is no chance of any icing tonight. It is just too warm. The temperature in Trenton should be around 38 or so during the rain.
