Tracking light snow for the weekend

Good Friday, everyone. Our weekend is just about to begin, but it doesn’t look like our weather is going to be the best in the world. Rounds of light snow will roll across the state over the next few days and might create more travel troubles.

Today’s weather will feature a mix of sun and clouds, with highs in the low and middle 20s. Clouds will quickly thicken this evening as a wave of low pressure develops and passes to our south and east.

That will throw a round of snow our way later Friday night and Saturday morning. That shows up well on the NAM:

A quick inch or two of snow will be possible with this first round. After a bit of a break during the afternoon hours, another shot of light snow will be possible Saturday evening and overnight:

NAM 2Another light accumulation might accompany that band as it rolls through. Yet another round of light snow will be possible later Sunday and Sunday night. This isn’t a big storm, but it could lay down light accumulations for many residents over the weekend.

The longer range for next week has a lot for us to watch. The southern branch of the jet stream is coming alive with energy, and we have many systems rolling in. The models will have a tough time figuring all this out, especially the GFS. That’s a model that will be overpowered by the southern branch for a while.

The higher-resolution European Model is likely to have a better handle on things. Better does not mean perfect, though. The Euro continues to show a sizable storm coming from the Gulf of Mexico and up the east coast from late Tuesday through Thursday:

Make it a great Friday and take care.
