Continued Clouds & Cool Temps

After Wednesday night and early Thursday's snowfall, most of the foothills landed in the 4-6" range. Check out our Facebook page for a thread on the snow accumulations throughout our region. Clouds hang around with cool temperatures overnight, with some colder air moving in late. The theme through the weekend is to remain colder than normal especially Friday night so the snow isn't going to disappear that fast. Next week is rather damp with light rain beginning Sunday afternoon. We don't exactly turn on a dime to start March, but a couple of afternoons in the 60's are on the way.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front arrives from the west late this evening with more flurries possible overnight, mainly to the west along the mountains. However, accumulating snow is over.

Friday is dry and chilly as high pressure moves from the Northern Plains towards the Mid-Atlantic. By Saturday the high wedges down the east side of the Appalachians locking in the chilly air for the weekend. Moisture returns Sunday afternoon with spotty light rain showers.

Thereafter we'll interact with several fronts next week and a brief return of the high pressure wedge Tuesday. The takeaway is for a one-day mild-up Monday with widely scattered showers. A cooler and damp Tuesday with more light showers. Warmer air and more solid rain finally wins out in the Wednesday/Thursday time frame with a Spring-like feel that we haven't felt in a long long time.
