I know this warm weather is nice. Even getting a possible thunderstorm later is pretty cool for March. But winter is coming back. Not because it will get colder, but because it will snow. Yes, snow. Perhaps more than once too.
Cold front moving through this evening. Showers and a thunderstorm are likely. Some heavy rain. Colder Tuesday.
Next system arrives for Wed morning with snow. it should snow much of the day. Two keys: surface temps and rate of snowfall. It will accumulate on colder surfaces, but paved roads will be more difficult, unless it snows heavily. It could early, but I don't think it will persist much of the day. Right now, I'm thinking 2-4" colder surfaces (grass, cars, etc.) with less on paved roads.
Then a significant storm will develop for the late week, early weekend. This will be a big storm. This could be rain ending as some snow. Uncertain. Many models are now trying to show this as a colder system that could dump several inches of snow. But I'm not convinced yet. I still think it will track a little further west giving us rain and maybe a little snow in the air at the end. Expect snow if you're traveling west into the Alleghanies in western PA.
