ROCKFORD (WREX) — As we've had pleasant and dry conditions this past weekend, the next week brings a few changes. Temperatures will be cooler with a chance for not only rain but possibly snow.
No longer dry:
This weekend featured temperatures in the 60's as well as dry conditions and sunshine. As we head into the next week, we will be leaving behind these mild conditions.
With a cold front pushing through the area on Monday, there are chances for rain showers. These showers will be light. Monday will not be a wash-out type of event, however if you will be out and about having an umbrella handy may be a good idea.
By Monday night, chances for rain showers continue to stick around. As temperatures cool, the rain showers may transition into a rain and snow mix into the overnight hours and early morning hours for Tuesday.
As we start the day on Tuesday, this wintry mix will begin to transition into mainly snow. There is a chance for a transition back into rain/snow into the afternoon. Temperatures for Tuesday night will be below freezing.
In terms of accumulations, there may be a slushy accumulation mostly on lawns and grassy surfaces. The total amounts for accumulations are still not guaranteed quite yet as this system has many moving parts that still need to fall into place. Stay tuned to the 13 Weather Authority with more updates in the coming days.
After we dry out by Tuesday night, Wednesday afternoon may bring another chance for a rain and snow mix.
The good news is that by Thursday, we will see plenty of sunshine with temperatures beginning to creep back to the 60 degree mark.
The end of the week looks promising as we say good-bye to the winter like conditions. Partly sunny skies and highs flirting with the 60's, are expected for the end of the week.
