Rain in the valleys and snow on the hill should begin by this afternoon as temperatures start to gradually cool. Probably 2-4” around mid-mountain by Saturday morning.
There may be a smal break earlier Saturday before the main event begins to affect our area by later in the day. Sharply colder air and a burst of heavy snow should cross the area around sunset, with snow continuing through the night as cold northwest flow engulfs the region. Likely an additional 6-12” by Sunday morning on the hill, with showers tapering off during the morning and ending by the afternoon as the cold air mass stabilizes.
Temperature will warm significantly on Monday and stay warm through mid-week. A very weak wave traverses the northern part of our state on Wednesday leading to clouds and possibly some showers in seasonably warm air.
A stronger group of wave moves across the area around beginning Thursday afternoon and continuing through the day Friday. This may produce significant precipitation as winds are forecast to turn to the northwest while cooling, though earlier model runs had this wave more split, so the forecast will evolve.
