Sunday Discussion : Raw Rain Showers

So close, snow lovers… so close.  But not this time.

Precipitation moved in before midnight Saturday night, and with temperatures in the mid 30s, that meant a cold rain.  Well, there was enough cold air in the atmosphere to lead to a brief period of sleet and wet snow in some areas on the front edge of the rain.  But once the air mixed a bit with the falling precipitation, most areas became a steady cold rain.

As we look at Sunday, the rain showers should become more intermittent during the morning at first… before possibly intensifying by late morning.  As the low pressure pushes east, the back edge of precipitation could produce enough lift to cool the air enough for a change back over to snow.  The chances of this occurring are best the further north you go.  But any accumulation should be confined to areas above 1000ft.  For the majority of us, the rain showers could end as a mix of rain and wet snow around mid day… or early afternoon.  Skies will remain mainly cloudy, before gradually clearing overnight.

Looking into the start of the week, sunshine returns for Monday and Tuesday.  We’ll see a SW flow return, which will bring temps back up near to above average for late November.  Something we haven’t seen in what feels like forever.

We’re tracking our next storm for Wednesday, which promises to bring a lot of wind to the region, and some colder air into Thanksgiving day.  We’ll touch more on that later today.  Have a great Sunday!
