Despite the seasonable spring temperatures, and quite a bit of sunshine Wednesday… Winter is far from over with two systems I’m keeping an eye on… one for the week and one for the middle of next week. More on those systems in a second.
First, light rain is spreading into the region as we speak as a warm front lifts northward. The cold front and low pressure system rolls in for Thursday, bringing showers for the morning, with more widespread at times heavy rain during the afternoon. Rainfall totals remain less than three quarter of an inch , and were drying out for Friday.
The weekend forecast looks sloppy, no matter what! Right now it looks like our storm will start with a thump of heavy wet snow, then as the warm air infiltrates the region from the south, and precipitation types become very elevation dependent, from valley rain to mountain snow and sleet and freezing rain in between. The timing of the transition is still a big question mark, as is how much snow we can expect, so stay tuned!
I’m also keeping an eye on another snowy storm for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week!
Have a great evening!
