WINTER FEEL ONE YEAR AGO
Tuesday was a far cry from one year ago today! LAST YEAR on this date the LAST measurable snow of the season fell, with .3". Our snow season will be ending soon and will end as the 4th straight season below normal snowfall.
RAIN CHANCES WILL RISE
STORM and rain threats are on hold until Thursday morning. The axis of unstable air will remain west Wednesday. The Storm Prediction Center has several states under a “slight” risk for Wednesday.
Temperatures will take a substantial dive to end the work week. A much colder/breezy Friday is expected, but a new warm surge will emerge in time for Easter Sunday. The images below depict the upper-air wind and temperatures at jet stream levels - where jet aircraft fly. The cold dip moves out starting Saturday morning allowing the temperatures to surge again for Sunday.
It will be 30-degrees warmer than last Easter!
