Cold enough for snow soon..? Not today anyway.

A mild day today, but we'll be tracking a few faint showers and keeping an eye on some cold weather on the way

Happy Easter!

I hope you all are having a wonderful time with friends and family. Today we'll be tracking clouds back into town instead of the marvelous sunshine of the past two days. There are a few showers around the region, but they will not be too troublesome. It appears the showers and clouds will come in just a little too quickly to nip out those chances for a sunrise viewing, but it's still possible to sneak a break in the clouds :-)

One thing that will be annoying for some is that we'll be dropping back down in temperatures from one day to the next...

GFS - Max Temps - Mon GFS - Max Temps - Tue GFS - Max Temps - Wed

So if you've been loving this spring weather, soak it up while you can, because March is going to drop by for a few days. It will be quite something to get temperatures in the 40s leaking down the Appalachians the week after hitting 80 degrees. So far, that pattern we discussed several days ago that looked at the possibility of approaching snowflakes still has the flakes in there.

That black line represents temperatures below freezing just above the surface (ie, not the surface). Combining a few other factors that we've discussed, we can model the prospects for the precipitation type.

The mountains are still looking good for the snowflakes, as are the favored areas along the Great Lakes. Another thing to think about going forward, is that these large temperature swings (from shake-to-bake, etc.) that we're looking at in the days ahead will eventually require us to look more at severe weather prospects. However, that will undoubtedly start off in the middle of the country first, so we've got plenty of time. :-)
