A Touch Of Winter For The Weekend

Colder air and some flakes move in for the weekend.

Good Friday to one and all. We have come to the end of another active week of weather across the region. The past week has been fairly wild with everything from severe thunderstorms to ice. This winter stinks for snow lovers… but it sure isn’t lacking in the interesting weather department.

Colder air is filtering into the region today as our big rain maker works to our northeast. The air may be just cold enough for a little bit of rain and snow mix early today for a few areas. Temps should fall into the upper 30s and low 40s early and hold nearly steady all day long. Follow the precipitation ...





We have a couple of fast-moving systems set to impact our weather this weekend. The first arrives on the scene early Saturday with gusty winds and a line of rain and snow showers zipping through. There could be a touch of some sleet with this one. Here’s how the GFS sees this…

Temps will spike into the upper 30s ahead of this fast-moving front and then drop a few degrees once it swings through here.

Another fast mover will be inbound on Sunday and will bring more gusty winds and a few snow showers and flurries. The best chance to pick up a small accumulation would be across the north… especially later in the day. The GFS shows this region as being closest to the main shield of light snow…

We will see temps begin to mild up for the first half of next week with 50s likely again by Tuesday. This will be ahead of another system that works in with some rain for the middle of the week.

The end of next week is showing some signs of trying to get a storm going across the east. The GFS has been locked onto this for a few days now…

The European Model has something similar trying to cut off around here into next weekend…

Yes, I know how this winter is going and how the chance of that actually working out in our favor is low. I get it… but this is a weather blog and looking ahead is what we do. :)

Have a great Friday and take care.
