Snow & Cold Temps Thursday & Friday, More Comfortable this Weekend 

 

Temperatures tonight become extremely cold again and will stay cold during the day tomorrow with many of us not making it above 0. We will see a low pressure system moving into the area tomorrow and snow will start in southern coast area around noon. It will continue though the evening. Many of us will fall in the 3-6” range. It will be light and fluffy snow since temps will be so cold. It will be windy by tomorrow night so conditions will not be good for travel. Snow continues into Friday morning but should all wrap up by early afternoon. Temps Friday stay cold, not making it out of the single digits.

 

By Friday night things clear out as a high pressure system moves into the area. It’ll be sunny Saturday with much more comfortable temperatures in the teens for low 20s for the majority of us.  Sunday will be even warmer with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s which are slightly above normal for this time of year. We’ll see partial sunshine on Sunday with increasing clouds as we head into Sunday night.

 

It is looks like we could be impacted by yet another significant storm on Sunday night and into the day Monday. At this point of the of the models has the low basically crossing right though the state bringing snow to most with some ice and rain mixing in along the coast. It’s a little soon to tell, and honestly I’m a little busy with tomorrow’s storm, but just wanted to throw that out there for those of you who get as excited about snow as I do.
