Cold Air Crashes In

Good Sunday, folks. We have a big time blast of cold air sweeping across the state today and it may even spawn some early morning snowflakes. The good news is that this cold will only last a couple of days before milder air comes back. But, that milder air looks to be accompanied by another active setup.

Let’s begin with the early morning action pushing across the eastern half of the state. Showers may end as a period of light snow and flurries…

Temps this morning will reach the 20s in several areas. Skies will become partly to mostly sunny as the day wears on with temps in the 40s. A hard freeze is likely across the entire region tonight and Monday morning as temps reach deep into the 20s…

Temps begin to moderate by the afternoon and that continues through the week. Highs by Wednesday and Thursday may make a run at 70 as winds become southwesterly.

This takes us into a pattern that will feature storm systems rolling from west to east across the country. The first one arrives late Thursday into Friday and brings showers and storms with it…

That moves away very quickly, but the next system is right behind it for late Sunday and Monday…

That brings more showers and storms with it, and you can see the next system ready to follow out of Texas.  This is the warmer and wetter than normal pattern I’ve been talking about for April. It can bring quite a bit of thunderstorm action our way, with an increased chance for severe weather.

Have a great Sunday and take care.

    Thanks Chris, we will have to wait and see if ornamental trees and shrubs along with the orchard crops will escape damage from the forecast of low temperatures in the mid to low twenties. Delayed budding will likely survive the impending freeze and recover when normal temperatures return. Storm total .45 inches and for the month of March 2.11 inches. No reports of wind or hail damage in my county, just a very dramatic drop in temperatures around 9:00 EST yesterday evening. Enjoy your Sunday.
