Warmer weather to slowly depart our region

A very strong area of low pressure has departed the US via Lake Superior this morning, but most of the weather from this storm remains displaced well away from its low pressure center. A warm front (red line) and series of cold fronts (blue lines) extend out from this system and will continue impact our weather through today and tomorrow.With the warm front to our north, temperatures across the region will mostly be in the 40s this morning.The first unimpressive cold front will move through during the day today. Temperatures behind this front are only slightly cooler than ahead of it, however. What the front lacks for in cold air, it has in precipitation. Rain showers ushered in this from late this morning and early this afternoon before everything continued to press east.The second front, now stretching south from the low across Lake Michigan, will become ill defined as the parent storm takes off to the north. However, even though there will not be a moment where the front moves through, cold air will gradually seep into the region.High temperatures should go from the low 40s on Saturday, to 30s on Sunday, to just 20s on Monday. Once we drop below freezing for high temperatures on Monday, it looks like we will have another fairly long duration of below normal temperatures lasting right into early March.
