Good Tuesday morning everyone!
Our storm system departs today, and the sunshine works back in. Any early showers will be of little consequence (considering all we got yesterday). A flake or two may mix in at the end as the last sprinkles work their way east of Charleston into the mountains, but the two other things you'll notice today are the cold chill and the breezes. Here are some indicators on the NAM products:
|NAM - Clouds / SFC Pressure - Tuesday Afternoon||NAM - Wind Field - Tuesday Afternoon|
Still below-normal for temperatures, but Saturday's weather shows what can happen with just enough of that March sunshine (don't count on warmth today though).
We'll stay in this chilly air through mid-week. There are another few blips on the maps coming. Each one has a shot for snowfall for parts of the tri-state.
|NAM - Wednesday Afternoon||NAM - Thursday Afternoon|
The first batch is from a weak system scooting through, and the second is wholly lake-effect / upslope driven. Temperatures at the 850mb level drop near -15C, which is a good indicator for those scattered flurries popping up.
Our next weather-maker of note does not make an appearance until Sunday night. Here's the GFS:
|GFS - Sunday Evening|
Rain first, but there's enough snow trailing behind to keep an eye in it.
