Active Pattern Continues – More Flakes Set To Fly This Week

Hello everyone!

Tired of snow? That could be a problem as we have several storm threats lined up for the next few days that all have the chance to bring accumulating snow to the region. Our first threat, is today into tomorrow.

Today will feature some snow showers/flurries as a weak front moves through. Very little accumulation is expected with a coating to an inch expected under the heaviest of showers. Expect much warmer temps today with inland areas in the 20’s and the coast making a run at the freezing mark (the islands and the peninsulas should get there).

However, all good things must come to an end and as the arctic front pushes offshore, much colder air moves in which sets the stage for our next snow event tomorrow morning. A wave of low pressure will develop to our south and ride NE along the front, wherever the front may be. If the front is slower and stalls farther west, the storm tracks farther west and we get more snow. The opposite would happen if the front moved through a little faster and the storm shifted farther east.

Here is what I expect snowfall totals will be when this storm wraps up midday tomorrow. The heaviest snow will fall during the AM commute which could cause some traffic problems. This will be a wetter snow than most of our recent events and some raindrops could mix in on the outer parts of the peninsulas. Otherwise, this is another all snow event.

Our next threat is already lined up for Sunday into Monday. Still way too early for details but there is some serious potential as cold air will be in place and moisture will be organizing to our south. Stay tuned for later updates regarding that threat.
