The signs of Old Man Winter could be found on grass and unpaved surfaces around the region Tuesday morning. A slushy coating of wet snow fell prior to dawn, before ending as rain showers during Tuesday morning. Other than that… we have little if any indication that Old Man Winter hasn’t packed up and left the region.
On Wednesday, we’ll see sunshine and clouds, with highs likely into the low 50s, out ahead of our next storm system for late Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
The one thing that looks less likely, is the potential for wet snow in the region. It appears that temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s, but most of us will see rain falling on Thursday morning. The rain will be with us through late morning, before tapering off and being mostly cloudy in the afternoon. Temps will hold in the 30s and low 40s for most of Thursday, before temps begin to surge prior to dawn on Friday.
We’ll have clouds and scattered rain showers for much of Friday, but the warm SW flow will allow temps to jump all the way up toward 70 degrees for a high. Quite a notable change from Thursday to Friday. Then for the weekend, we’ll see temps tumble once again, as cold air returns. Highs over the weekend in the 40s are likely.
So we prepare to ride the wave of early spring, as warm air will be short lived, before cold air makes a comeback. Hope you have a safe and happy Wednesday.
