Tracking the snow potential

Good Wednesday, everyone. The arctic cold air will continue to keep us in the deep freeze through the rest of the week and into the weekend. I don’t know too many people who are a fan of frigid weather without snow. So, what about our snow chances this week? Let’s talk about that.

A clipper system will dive into the state from the northwest later today. This will have a band of light snow and flurries with it, and that action will mainly affect the north and east. Highs today will be in the upper 20s. Here’s your daily dose of weather trackers:

The passage of this clipper will bring in another round of arctic cold for Thursday. Temps Thursday will be lower than today, in the low and mid-20s for many areas.

That’s when we turn our attention toward a developing system for Friday. An area of low pressure will form to our southwest and roll eastward across the Tennessee Valley. The models have been trending weaker with this storm over the past day or so. Several of the American run models show it bringing only some very light snow in here on Friday.

The models from other countries show a little more robust snow potential. The Canadian Model is among them:

Let’s see what today’s model runs bring us before I get too specific on what that system brings us.

The long range call for next week is for a brief mild up for Monday and Tuesday. That all comes crashing down with another arctic front by the middle of the week.

Have a great Wednesday and take care.
