Another nice spring day today. And another snowfall tomorrow. Actually, our largest snowfall for the whole winter snow season to date.
Rapidly deepening storm will move along a sharp trough on Saturday giving us a touch of rain before sunrise then quickly changing to heavy snow for the morning before tapering off in the midafternoon.
As the storm strengthens, the winds will pick up substantially. Lots of blowing and drifting for Sat afternoon into the overnight on Sat night. The winds should die down by Sun morning. It will be cold with temps dropping to around 10 degrees or so.
Storm details: Snow: 5-8" with locally higher amounts possible.
Then a weak clipper system comes SE across our area on Sunday. It could bring some light snow showers, but not a big deal. After that system, it returns to more springlike weather: 40s and 50s. Maybe 60s later next week. So snow haters ... it will melt fast. Don't worry.
Saturday: Rain to snow very early. Heavy at times. Ends by 4 pm. 33.
Saturday night: Windy. Blowing and drifting snow. Cold.
Sunday: Partly sunny then cloudy. Chance snow shower. Cold. 30.
Monday: Partly to mostly sunny. Milder. 48.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Mild. 52.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. 55.
Thursday; Mostly cloudy. Chance for rain showers. 55.
