Winter weather dominates the weekend

Good Friday, everyone. We continue with bitter cold across the region, and this will carry us through the start of the weekend. The end of the weekend is getting more and more of my attention for the icy mix potential.

Let’s start with Friday. Temps will start near zero, with a wind chill well below zero. Highs in the afternoon are generally 15 to 20 degrees. I can’t rule out a few flurries or snow showers, especially across the western parts of the state:

The Sunday and Monday system continues to look very messy across our region, with a definite colder trend on the models showing up. I think that trend continues, leading to a wintry mess falling from the skies.

The European model continues to show all modes of precipitation:

With the models likely being just a little too warm, the frozen stuff might show up stronger and stronger in the coming days. With a frozen ground, icy travel is a strong possibility regardless of precipitation type.

A brief moderation in temps will show up by Wednesday or early Thursday, but the models are all showing another arctic front moving in, with a storm developing along it. Here’s the European model:

The GFS:

Make it a great Friday and take care.
