Tracking a taste of winter

Good Thursday, folks. Old Man Winter isn’t going quietly into the night. We have a messy system bringing some rain and snow to much of our region. It isn’t a lot of snow, but it’s a reminder that true spring is still a ways away.

Thursday’s round of nasty comes from a system working in from the west. The models continue to “hot spot” parts of the region for some wet snow. That shows up well on the NAM:

Air and ground temps will be above freezing, so most of that snow will melt. It can, at times, snow harder than it can melt, leading to some slushy accumulation.

Below-normal temperatures will be with us through the weekend. One more little system dives in from the northwest on Saturday and could bring a shower or two our way.

Spring really shows up well early next week as a ridge of high pressure develops along the east coast. That happens as a trough deepens in the plains states.

This setup can lead to round of big storms in between. The GFS keeps spitting out some hefty rainfall numbers:
