One More Winter Threat Before Our Mid to Late Week Warmup

We are almost to our much needed spring-like warm up but there's one more system we'll have to deal with Monday night into Tuesday.  A clipper system is going to swing out of southwestern Canada and develop an area of low pressure across the northern plains.  This will work its way across the center of the country before swinging up into the northeast.  Even though we'll be on the warm side of the low tracking into the Ohio Valley, there will be a weak area of high pressure that should keep enough of a cold wedge in place to produce another shot at light wintry precipitation for northern portions of the state.  This won't be anything major, but could cause some Tuesday morning commute problems.  Maybe even a few school delays.  It's always tough to say exactly how clippers will behave but note the area shaded in pink is where I think there's at least a shot at some minor accumulations.

Things will warm up after this.  Here's a sneak peak at what kind of highs we'll be looking at Wednesday-Friday.  Most areas will get rid of most (if not all) of their snow pack by the weekend.
