More snow expected tonight

I’ve bumped up snow numbers due to model data already underplaying system moving in.

More snow is expected tonight with an additional 1 – 2 inches of snow possible.  The set-up will be similar to what we saw yesterday when a record 5.5 inches of snow fell but I don’t think we will see a 20:1 ratio like yesterday.  It appears lift will be limited with the cyclonic motion of the upper low pushing off to the east.

For the season (Dec, Jan and Feb) we have now seen 50.5 inches of snow and are just a half inch of snow away from setting a record for most snow ever in a season’s time.  At this point it looks like we will be closer to the 2 inches of snow than the 1 inch of snow forecast as the system is once again being underplayed by models.

Once tonight’s snow passes through we can turn our attention to warmer weather.  40s are expected by Tuesday with highs in the upper 50s on Thursday!  There will be a couple of chances for rain including a chance for rain all day long on Monday.  Rain will likely keep Monday temps below 40 degrees.  Most snow should melt from Monday into Wednesday with temps spending a big chunk of time above freezing.  Any snow left may help to keep us below 60 degrees on Thursday with more rain and strong winds expected.  At this point it looks like we will be close to 60 degrees for a high with 40s expected for afternoon highs on Friday.
