Good Monday to one and all. The first full week of March is upon us and , in typical March fashion, has a wide variety of weather to throw our way. We have a mid week storm that will bring us rain and snow and that will be followed by a nice mild up by the end of the week into the weekend.
Skies will be partly sunny today as afternoon clouds roll in. Temps will hit the upper 30s to low 40s for most of the area. Those clouds are ahead of our next storm that works in for Tuesday. The lead low will work into the Ohio Valley and weaken as another low develops to our southeast.
The NAM has a good handle on this…
What does it mean for us? Rain develops Tuesday as the low works across the state. It pushes to our northeast and allows much colder air to filter in, changing the rain to snow late in the day into the evening hours. We will have to watch for a period of wraparound snow moving in from the north Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The models often struggle with placement and intensity of this type of snow band.
Snow showers and flurries would then slowly wind down during the day as a cold wind blows.
I like the looks of that, but will believe it when I see it. The bad news is that it won’t last very long as a cold front moves in early next week. That will bring a return of colder than normal temps and the possibility of more wintry stuff.
Have a great Monday and take care.
