Much colder through Sunday before a nice mild stretch unfolds for most of next week. Anyone want a run toward 70 around Wed/Thu next week? It will feel like spring, and the bulbs will begin to burst forth. Cannot wait.
This warmth will be possible as a big ridge builds in the central and eastern US. This will warm us up significantly, as a trough brings a ton of rain to California and the SW (a blessing for them). Back east for us, until Monday, winter will make its presence felt, again.
Points for Next 7 Days:
- Rain: Tonight into very early Wed morning. Expect about 4/10”. System is moving faster now, so less rainfall will occur.
- Cold: Turning colder Wed, and staying cold through Sunday.
- Snow Fall #1:
- Low pressure moves out of the plains east to near extreme SW PA. This spreads a steady light to at times moderate snow into our area Thu night into Fri morning.
- Second low pressure develops off the NC coastline. As storm rapidly deepens, snow may intensify across our area some Fri morning into early afternoon before ending. The question is whether storm moves due east or north for a 100 miles and then due east. Subtle difference in track results in a difference of several inches.
- Accumulation: at least 3” in valleys; 4” on ridges.
- Snow Fall #2: Snow showers Sat night from an Alberta Clipper system (fast moving storms that originate in the Canadian Province of Alberta and dive SE). Not a big deal.
- Warm Up: Once past this weekend expect a much milder trend to set in for much of the next week.
