Good Tuesday to one and all. Your friendly weather-dude isn’t feeling so friendly tonight as a high fever and flu-like symptoms have me down. NyQuil is on the job, so blame that for any misspellings or stupid comments. Oh wait… nevermind.
- A weak front is crossing the region today and will cause clouds and scattered showers to increase. This isn’t a washout, but one or two of them may find you.
- A scattered shower may hang tough into Wednesday as milder air pushes in. Temps hit the upper 40s and low 50s today… 50s Wednesday and 60s for Thursday.
- A stronger front will move in Thursday night and early Friday. This will bring gusty winds, showers and some thunder and much colder air for the weekend. Some flakes are possible later Friday into Saturday.
- A few of the models develop a wave or low pressure along this front and that could make things a bit interesting. Could is the key word there.
Here’s a quick look back at the weekend snowstorm that had one of the sharpest accumulating cutoffs that I have ever seen. You could literally drive 20 miles and go from no snow to 4 or 5 inches of the white stuff.
Don’t believe me? Check out this amazing satellite shot from space that shows what a distinct cutoff there was:
That was taken shortly after daybreak Monday morning. The dark-colored areas show the bare ground. The white areas show the varying levels of snowfall. That is an amazing thing to look at and really shows where the moisture ran into a wall of drier air that was filtering in from the north.
For those who weren’t happy to see the snow missed their backyard. Keep this in mind… the power outages will have a longer life span than the snow that caused them. Most of the snow will be gone today, while the power won’t be on to some areas until later this week.
My NyQuil is kicking in, so I should wrap this up. Think I can get an endorsement deal from it? Me, either. Have a great Tuesday and take care.
