Sun to High Clouds. Cold Wednesday. Thickening Clouds Tonight…


High pressure originating in Canada will influence our today.  Bright, but cold conditions are expected. I don’t think too many will mind the cold, as long as the sun is shining. High clouds will work in later in the day.

Increasing and thickening clouds tonight. All areas will be well below freezing.

The next storm will arrive Thursday and continue into Friday. This system looks to be a significant precipitation producer. A front end thump of accumulating will occur during the day Thursday. The snow should start sometime between 6-9am and has the potential to become moderate to heavy for a time from late morning into the afternoon. The latest computer guidance has the storm a bit farther offshore. While this is a colder solution, the heaviest axis of precipitation would be placed farther South and East. This could result in more snow for Southern regions. I will take a look at the new guidance late this morning and digest the information before adjusting snow amounts (they usually change, as I quite often state. 3rd map above). A mix to sleet and or freezing rain looks to occur later in the day Thursday or Thursday night, especially closer to the coast. But again, with the colder solution it maybe more snow. The precipitation will lighten up later in the afternoon and at night.

The storm will be a slow mover and take its time moving out to sea on Friday. Occasional light snow or a mix is expected into the afternoon.

The weekend looks bright and chilly.

Stay Tuned.

Keep it here for a no nonsense, no hype forecast.
