We will have partly to mostly cloudy skies tonight with a few snow showers possible as a cold front moves through the region. It will be windy as well. Wind chills could fall into the -10 to -20 range overnight. Thursday’s highs won’t be able to warm up much at all with the arctic air mass in place. We’ll only see teens during the day. Friday we’ll be able to make it back into the 20s in most spots but then another arctic front comes through ushering in very cold air for Saturday.
A low will begin to form in the south and move into our area for late Saturday night into Sunday. That will be bringing snow into the region. Doesn’t look like there will be any mixing of precipitation with this storm because such cold air will be in place. My early estimations on accumulations are in the 4-8” range. Lots can change in the next three and a half days though. The GFS was much more aggressive in snowfall amounts this morning but has started to push the storm out to sea. In talking with Chris and Todd about this particular model I learned that this was often the case with the GFS model last year. It would start aggressive, and then push the storm off the coast, but then the storm would swing back and hit us. Something interesting for us to keep an eye on for sure. As of now it looks like snow will continue through the whole day on Sunday. Temps will stay cold too. Snow will wrap up late and skies clear for Monday as a high pressure systems move in.
