WINTRY MIX BEGINS MARCH

Expected snow accumulations through Sunday evening.

The night begins clear and frigid, but clouds build through the night as our next weather maker heads this way. Temperatures fall into the middle to upper teen initially, and then bump up a couple degrees as the clouds thicken. Some light snow showers enter the western parts of our region close to daybreak. Through the morning, on and off snow showers and light snow overspread our region. A light coating to a couple inches is expected through the early afternoon. A transition to light sleet and light freezing rain pockets takes place through the early afternoon from south to north, making for slick travel. Our southern counties see the most icing. During the evening, the pockets of light mixing and even some rain fades as temperatures rise near to barely above freezing. By midnight, the region should be dry.Web Photo 5

 

 

MORE MIXING MIDWEEK

Monday through the first half of Tuesday gives us a short break from the wintry weather. Skies are mostly clear Monday, but still below seasonable averages for this time of year. Highs are in the lower to middle 30s. Tuesday, clouds increase as our next storm system approaches. This brings the chance for a wintry mix later in the day, with a transition to rain through the night. The rain showers wrap up early Wednesday, with some sunshine breaking through later in the day. Temperatures are much closer to seasonable averages for the beginning of March, rising into the lower to middle 40s.

 

 

SLOWLY TURNING SEASONABLE

Some snow showers are possible Thursday with some colder air working into the area too. Friday is quiet but cold. Expect mostly sunny skies. Conditions look to warm up a bit again Saturday. Highs could make it into the 40s again!

 

 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
