Super Bowl Sunday Update

Good afternoon, folks. It’s an absolutely fantastic March day for this Super Bowl Sunday. Sunny skies, mild temps and very gusty winds continue to control the day. As we roll into the week ahead, we find a very active pattern with lots of rain and the potential for winter weather showing up.

Temps this afternoon hit 60 or a bit better in many areas as winds gust to around 40mph. Skies are mostly sunny.

Clouds increase on Monday as temps stay in the 60s. Those clouds will eventually produce rain by Monday night and that’s a sign of things to come.

A slow-moving front moves into the region and stops for a few days, bringing waves of low pressure along it. This will lead to rounds of heavy rain with the potential for a little thunder. As our boundary presses a bit farther east with each passing low, we have the opportunity to get in on some winter weather, especially late in the week. It won’t take much adjustment to actually get some accumulating snow from this setup, so keep that in mind going forward.

This is something the GFS is showing…

The ICON is similar…

The Canadian doesn’t see as much winter weather…

The Euro doesn’t have much snow…

It does follow it up with a snow maker next weekend…

Temps should rebound quickly with the potential for another big rain event the following week.

Have a great rest of your day and take care.

Looking At A Very Active Week Ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. It’s Groundhog Day, but it hasn’t been the same since Bluegrass Bubba got run over by an ice cream truck years ago. I think it’s how he would have wanted to go. 😉 This big day is also Super Bowl Sunday, but Mother Nature is quite the scene stealer. Gorgeous weather shows up out there today.

This nice weather doesn’t stay with us very long as another active setup shows up in the week ahead. We will take a look at that and look much farther down the weather road.

Highs today are around 60 with skies becoming mostly sunny. A few clouds filter in on Monday with readings deep into the 60s. Those clouds will produce rain around here as early as Monday night into Tuesday as the first of several waves of low pressure roll through here. Heavy rains are a good bet in this setup and we even have the potential for some snow before the week is over.

Here’s the GFS…

The Canadian…

The ICON…

And the Euro…

The European Weeklies have done a bang up job with this warm and snowless winter. As we look ahead through the middle of March, they keep our temps averaging above normal…

That doesn’t mean we can’t have some cold shots in there, but the overall numbers skew milder than normal.

In terms of precipitation, is there any question? Much above normal has been the norm for the past several years, minus last September when it didn’t rain…

The more things change, the more they stay the same!

I will throw you another update later today. Have a good one and take care.
