Oh No! Could There Be More Snow?

Temperatures were just TWO degrees shy of 80 degrees for our Sunday so it’s hard to imagine that in the next 36 hours there could be a coating of snow on the ground!

We’ll see on and off rain move into the region tonight and tomorrow along a cold front that will bring continued windy conditions and MUCH colder temperatures by this time Monday. By early Tuesday morning temperatures will drop off by almost 50 degrees allowing for some of the rain to switch over to snow showers Monday night/Tuesday morning.

As of now (Sunday evening) ensemble forecasts are showing a VERY good potential to see at least an inch of snow.

On top of that, models are also showing a better than 50 percent chance that we could see over 2 inches of snow!

So what do I make of all this?

Well, as much as I don’t like to talk about snow this time of year, it’s not all that out of the ordinary. The good news is that we’re coming off of a weekend with temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s, and while forecast models are showing the potential for over 2 inches of snow, I don’t think that’s going to happen because the ground will be just too warm! I have to think that if forecast models are showing 2-3 inches of snow, the first inch that falls will melt right away! For this reason I think an inch of snow, AT THE MOST, 2 inches will be possible by late Tuesday morning.

I’ll update once again on Monday as the storm begins to move in! Hopefully everyone had a great weekend!
