Good Friday to one and all. We have a strong upper level system working across the state today and that is likely to spawn intense snow showers and squalls. Throw in falling temps and gusty winds and you have the makings of a very wintry day.
Here’s a breakdown:
- The day starts with a few snow showers that can cause some travel issues. Winds will be gusty with temps in the upper 20s and low 30s.
- Snow showers and squalls will intensify as the upper level low scoots across the region this afternoon. These bands of snow can drop a quick inch and reduce visibilities to near zero at times. Roads can become slick in an instant.
- There is so much instability, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear of a rumble of thunder somewhere across the region.
- Temps will drop into the upper teens and low 20s by early this evening. Wind chills will drop to 0 to 5 above this evening and overnight. Ouch!
- The next system dives in late Saturday into Saturday night and should produce a swath of light snow. Here’s the view from the NAM:
