Snow chance and continued cold…March 21st, 2013 at 6:44 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
We’re starting this first FULL day of Spring with morning readings in the teens and single-digit wind chill values. There are also scattered snow showers out there… and the high today will only make it up near the freezing mark. Last year we hit a record high on this date!!
Do you believe it? 86-degrees… what a sharp contrast this year!
Scattered snow showers are in the forecast through lunchtime, any accumulation will be light–under a half-inch. While *amounts* will be light… there is the potential for *intensity* of any given snow shower to be a bit more significant. So watch for a quick moderate burst of snow that may reduce visibility and put down a light dusting. Snow showers will taper this afternoon, and overnight skies will clear. This will set us up for a bright ending to the week!
The sun will help out a little tomorrow, as we climb into the lower 40s (but that’s still 10-degrees below normal!). Saturday we should hit the mid-40s… and then turn colder again for Sunday and into early next week. Yes, the storm that we’ve been watching for the second half of the weekend is looking colder… so that means a better chance of snow vs. rain. At this point it does look like we could see some snow accumulation, but it’s too soon to say how much. Stay tuned.
