Good Sunday everyone. I know I promised you guys another update yesterday, but your friendly weatherdude had to just chill out and cool the jets for a few hours. It’s been a busy few weeks as this pattern has really ramped up with snow and cold and that’s what we have coming up as we say hello to 2013.
We have a very cold Sunday taking shape with high temps in the upper 20s to low 30s. Breezy conditions will make it feel even colder. A few snow flurries or snow showers will hang tough across the east early today. The clouds try to break up a bit for many areas during the afternoon.
A cold front works in from the northwest on Monday as moisture increases from the Gulf of Mexico. This will cause light snow to break out for much of the state during the afternoon and evening hours. That action would then continue into the first day of 2013. Here’s a look at the juice coming from the GFS Ensembles…
That is likely to lay down a swath of accumulating snow from west to east across the state. How much is still in question and there’s also the question of a mix for the south. I think the models are doing the same thing they did this last time and are a shade too warm with the temps. For areas that are straight snow… a couple of inches would be a good bet.
This active and wintry pattern shows no real signs of letting up through the first few weeks of January. Enjoy your Sunday and take care.
