More snow tonight before warming and drying early next week
Saturday, November 16, 2013
Snow continues this afternoon between the two waves before the main cold front arrives around sunset, Sharply colder temperatures and a burst of heavy snow is likely with snow continuing through the night as cold and moist northwest flow traverses the region. Likely an additional 6-12” or more 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 for at least Tuesday. 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. The European model has in the past few model runs split the jet stream which would weaken the storms in our area as most of the energy is forecast south of us, while the American model still brings these waves across in a coherent manner. Stay tuned as model differences are resolved in later forecasts.
