Impeachment trial heads to historic end in frenetic week

President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial heads toward a historic conclusion this week, with senators all-but-certain to acquit him on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress after narrowly rejecting Democratic demands to summon witnesses.

There’s still plenty of drama to unfold before Wednesday’s vote.

Weather forecast: Wet flakes taper tonight

It is a bit breezy this morning, but otherwise mild. Clouds will be stubborn for much of the day, but there is some hope that we could see sun emerge later in the day as temperatures climb for many above the 40° mark.  This break from precipitation will be short as the next weather maker starts to develop for the middle of the week that could cause problems heading into Thursday and Friday.

For the details, the upper-level jet stream starts to surge southward over the western half of the lower 48. We are ahead of this, so we can watch as a large and broad low pressure system starts to develop Tuesday. the very northern edge of this could spin out some light rain and snow showers Tuesday as temperatures will still largely remain above freezing. Surface high pressure will slip into the Great Lakes Tuesday night and Wednesday that will help pull in colder air Wednesday with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Expect lows in the 20s and highs stuck around freezing.
