Workweek Outlook: A clipper and a Colorado low

This system will likely bring a mix of rain followed by snow and very strong winds

An Alberta Clipper will move into the Sault region mid-week to bring rainfall that could help melt a lot of the current snowpack. A couple of days later there is the potential for a strong Colorado Low to move into the central Great Lakes to bring a November Gale. This system will likely bring a mix of rain followed by snow and very strong winds.

Monday will be cloudy with temperatures just breaking the freezing mark in the afternoon. There will be patchy mixed precipitation through the day with the risk of freezing drizzle, snow pellets and drizzle during the warmest part of the day. No accumulation of any precipitation is likely.
A southerly flow arrives Tuesday to push temperatures to near +5C and also brings showers just after sunset. More steady rain arrives overnight.

Wednesday will see steady rain in the morning with showers continuing in the afternoon. Daytime highs will be near +5C. Winds will shift from the south, to the west at 15 to 25 km/h in the evening, and then to the northwest in the evening. Lingering showers could turn to flurries in the evening as temperatures rapidly drop below freezing.

Morning clouds will give way to sunshine for Thursday afternoon. Temperatures will climb to the freezing mark, but northerly winds at 10 to 15 km/h will bring cooler windchills.

The Colorado Low arrives late Friday into Saturday and should bring a mix of wintry weather. Rain is likely Friday night and Saturday morning with snow arriving late Saturday. The strong gusty winds arrive late Saturday to bring cold air and the risk of snow squalls on Sunday.
