Another day of light snow expected today as we continue to watch an upper level low rotate to the east. Snow totals have already been light with radar snow estimates showing an inch to two inches of snow falling over the past 24 hours. Snow accumulation is a very different story though with only a light dusting to minor accumulation through Friday morning because of melting once on the ground.
The rest of today will be similar to what we have seen over the past 24 hours. Temperatures will hover near 32 degrees with highs in the mid-30s. This type of weather is just not conducive to accumulating snow. Any additional accumulations will be relatively small.
The upper low moves onto the East Coast by tomorrow and we will begin to see at least some sun in the forecast as it does. Both Saturday and Sunday will be dry and chilly with highs in the mid-90s. The rest of the 7 day forecast will be cooler than the average of 45 degrees for this time of the year. We have now completed the ‘Average of 45 or below for 90 days’ period and people should really begin gearing up for the return of warmer air. At this point it looks like we have about ten days before it happens.
Early next week will see another chance for snow with a fast moving clipper low possibly bring a couple of inches of snow to the area by Tuesday. This article is courtesty of Meteorologist Ron Smiley who had to run out for donuts and mischief! He’s what I call: a giver…
