No Sign Of An Early Spring

Good Tuesday and welcome to a day of big weather changes. A powerful cold front is crossing the state early today and is bring a taste of old man winter with it. This is a sign of things to come as there are no signs of spring getting off to an early start.Yes, that officially bums me out. Wait… did I really say that?

Winds will be very gusty today as temps fall through the 30s behind our cold front. Showers will end as a period of light snow from west to east and a minor accumulation is possible for a spot or two. Some late day clearing will take place as the cold air continues to dive in.

Readings later tonight and early Wednesday will reach the teens in many areas. Some sunshine will do little to help out thermometers tomorrow with many areas having a tough time hitting the freezing mark.

Our next storm will begin to impact the region on Thursday with a wintry mix moving in during the afternoon and evening. Cold air will be in place as precipitation edges in and that means a little bit of everything may fall initially…

Most of that will be on the light side, but we will have to watch for some issues Thursday evening. Temps will rise Thursday night as rain takes over. Showers and 40s will be likely on Friday.

This pattern remains very stormy with low pressure areas impacting our weather every few days into early March. It’s very possible for one of these storms to blow up into a biggie.

Blocking continues to show up strongly on the models during this time. That’s never a good thing for those wanting spring…GFS 2Those are the forecast temp anomalies from the GFS Ensembles. That’s ugly into early March! Again… no signs of an early spring are showing up.

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
