Watching Early March

Good Saturday, everyone. Our last light snow maker continues to pull away from the region early today as much better weather rolls in for the weekend. As we flip the calendar from February to March, we focus on mild temps with the potential for rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms early next week.

Last night’s snows didn’t disappoint with some 1″-2″ amounts showing up in some of the bands we talked about. Early morning flakes move away, but roads may be icy with temps around 20 degrees. Temps reach the upper 30s to middle 40s with a mostly sunny sky.

March comes in with clouds increasing and temps heading into the upper 50s to low 60s on Sunday. It looks like an awesome day.

Rain rolls in here Sunday night into Monday and kicks off a very active week of weather. The trend of the models is for less rain for next week, but they look pretty muddled to me, so I wouldn’t put too much stock in any one model, even though I really hope this trend holds.

Still, this is a very unsettled look with the potential for some big rains and even the chance for a little winter on the backside…




I will have updates later today. I leave you with your early day trackers to watch the flakes get out of town…

    Richmond streets are caked in salt, so rain will be good.

    Unbelievable how 10 miles away can have a decent little snow and I only got enough snow to look like a heavy frost.

    Looks to have been south and east of my part of Richmond – a bit of a dusting here last night… 3 inches for the season, perhaps… four separate events?

    Hopefully we can now move on to more constant spring like conditions with warmer temps and less rain.
