Weather Forecast 3.27.14

This morning started off with a quick inch or two of snow across most of the region before the sun rose and limited additional accumulations with its high angle. Precipitation was not heavy everywhere during the afternoon and early evening, but snow showers will become more moderate throughout the night. For that reason, a winter weather advisory is in effect until 5am Friday morning.

The next wave of moisture arrives as night falls and it will be in the form of mostly flakes. Snow showers could be heavy at times, dropping between 2 to 4 inches overnight with some raindrops mixed in early on. Lows fall to the middle 20’s with S winds between 5 to 15 mph. Friday the snow ends early around 9am. Skies then clear later in the day as NW winds at 10 to 20 mph take over and pushes the clouds east. Temperatures top off in the upper 20’s for daily highs.

Tomorrow night high pressure takes control of the area and with the slightly cooler air mass, lows fall to the upper single digits. Winds also decrease for the night becoming light after midnight. With high pressure taking over, this weekend is setting up to be quite pleasant with mostly sunny skies and no arctic air in sight!!
