ROCKFORD (WREX) — As mild conditions have followed us into the weekend, the weather for next week brings a few changes as we will see cooler temperatures and a chance for rain and even snow showers.
One more mild day:
With the mild conditions we saw today, Sunday will feature much of the same weather. Temperatures on Sunday will reach the lower 60s. We stay dry for tomorrow as we'll see plenty of sunshine with mostly sunny skies.
These conditions come to an end as we wrap up the weekend. Temperatures next week will be much cooler. A cold front is expected to push through the area, bringing not only cooler temperatures but a mix of precipitation as well.
Rain and Snow?:
As we start the next week, there will be a few changes in the weather. April will typically see a snow shower and we may end up with just that.
By Monday, there is chance for rain showers into the afternoon. These showers will be light. As we see cooler air working in, these rain showers may transition into a rain/snow mix. This wintry mix is expected into the early morning hours of Tuesday.
As the temperatures remain in the upper 30s for Tuesday and struggle to climb into the 40s, the cooler air will help the wintry mix transition into snow for the late morning and early afternoon. By Tuesday night, the system moves out of the area.
Accumulations are not guaranteed just yet as this system has many moving parts that still need to fall into place. There are model differences on where the potential snow showers may line up which will impact any accumulations. The cooler air also needs to line up right. Stay tuned to the 13 Weather Authority and we will keep you updated on what to expect.
Thankfully, we will only be seeing this taste of winter for just one day. After Tuesday, conditions remain dry as the temperatures begin to work their way back up to the 60's.
