Winter weather starts the day

Good Saturday to one and all. Rain and snow is out there to start the day, with a narrow band of moderate to heavy snow dumping on parts of the region. As this system quickly moves away, another storm system makes a run at us on Sunday.

Let’s start with the system out there today. A band of heavy snow is likely to start the day and this may leave behind several inches of slushy snow in some areas. Outside of this band, there won’t be much issues. Under the band, roads may be snow covered for a time this morning.

This action will quickly come to an end this morning, with some sun this afternoon. Temps should hit the 40s.

Here are your expanded trackers:

Our next system rolls our way on Sunday, with the exact track being key to how much, if any, rain, snow or a combo you get at your house.

The GFS continues to be the lone model bringing this storm far enough north to impact our weather:

Most other models keep this thing to our south:

I’ll take the southern track and be perfectly fine with it!

Regardless, it turns cold again through Wednesday, with the potential for some additional snow shower diving in from the northwest. Temps finally rebound later next week, but my fear is for another very wet pattern to set up after that.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
