CommuteCast: Mostly Dry and Continued Chilly

By Ian Livingston

Next shot at snow: Thursday?

Earlier showers that were mixed with sleet and snow have now largely moved through the region causing little, if any, travel problems. Cloudiness will continue throughout the area during the evening and a passing shower is still possible. Any precipitation should be short lived, light and scattered. Temperatures will slowly fall back from daytime highs near 40 into the mid 30s.

Tonight: Lingering clouds are expected to give way to clearing skies throughout the night. Winds will slowly diminish as well, allowing temperatures to fall back into the mid to upper 20s.

Tomorrow: Sandwiched between gloomier weather days, we will see mostly clear skies by sunrise and this will continue throughout Wednesday. It will be another in a string of chillier than average days with temperatures only rising to around 40 in the city. As is often the case, temperatures will be slightly colder north and west and slightly warmer south and east. Clouds may begin to increase in the evening as an Alberta Clipper -- a fast-moving weather disturbance originating from Canada -- races toward the region from the northwest.

See Matt's post for a look at Thursday, Friday and the weekend.
