Friday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. Mother Nature kicked us in the teeth today with much colder air settling back into the region. This means our weekend is kicking off on a clear and cold note, but another super active setup is on the way from late this weekend into next week.

The first system arrives Sunday and may bring rain, mixed precipitation and a touch of snow…

There is some indication for a few hours of freezing rain before rain takes control. Once that rain takes control, it becomes heavy at times Monday into Tuesday. This is just another in a long line of systems ready to hit our region through next week…

Rainfall totals through next week are way up there and we could be looking at flooding on more than one occasion. Check out some of the totals…

European

The GFS Ensembles are also hitting this wet pattern over the next few weeks…

They also show the cold finally gaining control, bring more snow back into the picture…

Have a great evening and take care.

A Cold Break In The Active Setup

Good Friday, folks. Mother Nature is slapping us right in the face today as wintertime temps surge back in. In some areas, it’s feeling 60 degrees colder than the highest numbers we had on Thursday. That’s a big old OUCH! This cold air hangs into the start of the weekend, but another active setup kicks on by Sunday.

Temps take center stage today with reading in the 20s this morning and upper 20s to low 30s for afternoon highs. Winds will be gusty and it’s going to feel much colder. Single digit wind chills may be noted this morning.

Even with sunshine today, temps may not reach the freezing mark in many areas with gusty winds adding to the cold. A similar setup will be noted for Saturday.

Sunday will kick off another active setup with light rain and a mix of rain and snow moving in. The NAM shows areas across the north and east as having the best chance for a little frozen precipitation…

The setup then turns ugly through next week as multiple systems roll our way, each bringing a lot of precipitation…

Additional high water issues will be possible as early as late Monday into Tuesday.

This active pattern shows no signs of letting up and it’s really becoming annoying. The new long range European Model that goes through the middle of March and it shows the above normal precipitation centered right on our region…

The same model does skew temperatures a little colder than normal during the same time…

That setup leads to snow chances through March…

Please… PLEASE… Not another late arriving spring!!!! Ugh.

I will throw you another update later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
