Rain to snow to start February

Good Thursday to one and all. A cold front is working across the state, bringing rain and some snow. This might be the opening act of a bigger show on the way for Super Bowl weekend. Our snow and mix threat is on the increase.

Rainy weather takes us through late afternoon, with a switch to wet snow from northwest to southeast during the evening. That sets the stage for the potential of some light accumulations, especially across the southeast:

Slick roads may become an issue later tonight and early Friday morning. Frigid temps move in Friday with  teens to start and upper 20s to end.

The Super Bowl weekend system continues to look more impressive as it arrives late Saturday. Watch how the low looks stronger as it rolls up east of the Appalachian mountains on the GFS:

Compared to earlier runs, the Canadian model is coming back west and stronger with the system:

Don’t focus on the specifics showing on the models; instead, focus on the trend of a stronger system with more moisture. How that plays out exactly remains to be seen, but it’s one we are watching closely.

Let’s get back to Thursday’s action. I have you all set to do some tracking:
