Cloudy & Cooler Today, Snow Thursday?

A strong cold front moved through last night dropping the temps sharply behind it. Scattered showers will be ending this morning but the clouds will likely hold tough for most of us today. A few lucky areas may see some peeks of sunshine this afternoon. Highs will top out in the upper 40s to lower 50s this afternoon.

Another fast moving system starts to affect the area late night and into Thursday. Models have been trending cooler with the start of this system, and we may have some wintry precip to deal with Thursday morning. Most models are showing temps in the lower to middle 30s with a wintry mix moving in. Some light snow accumulation will be possible, mainly on grassy and elevated areas Thursday morning. Snow is always a tough forecast…so know this all could stay rain!

Much like the event a few weeks ago…some locations may be “lucky” (or unlucky depending on your view!) and get a quick heavy burst of snow. We will have more on this system as we go into this afternoon and tonight. Below are the EURO and NAM model maps for what they think on snow totals…

EURO MODEL: Total Accumulated Snowfall – Valid Friday Feb 21 00Z
NAM MODEL: Total Accumulated Snowfall – Valid Friday Feb 21 00Z

This system moves out of the area Thursday afternoon and we clear out Thursday night and Friday. Sunshine will be nice Friday, but the temperatures will be cold! Highs will only be in the 40s Friday with lows dropping well into the 20s Friday night into Saturday morning!

Showers may return as early as Sunday, unfortunately. Right now the rain does not look overly heavy, but keep checking back!

Have a great Wednesday!
