Temps begin to climb

Good Tuesday to one and all. Our winter storm is a thing of the past, but we’re still feeling the impact Tuesday, with snow- and ice-covered roads. Even though it’s cold, the sun should help melt some of that away.

The snowfall Monday was a record-breaker in Lexington for the date. Take a look at the impressive snow numbers for the day and the winter as a whole:

March Snow

Those are some impressive numbers, to say the least. This is now the second-snowiest winter in Lexington over the past 20 years. Only the winter of 2010-11 had more snow: 27.8 inches.  At the rate this month is going, we might have a shot at getting there.

Luckily, things don’t look as cold or snowy over the next several days. A system is forecast to work across the East Coast by Thursday, and it’s one we should keep an eye on. It might come far enough west to give us a shot at precipitation:

GFS 3

Temps look to moderate once that passes by. We might see 50 degrees to start the weekend. Unfortunately, that won’t last long, as another cold front dives in on Sunday. That might have a little rain or snow behind it.

One thing that does come in behind it is the cold. Check out the five-day temperature departures for next week:

Enjoy your Tuesday and take care.
