Snow showers start the week

Good Monday, everyone. It’s the 16th day of April and Old Man Winter is hanging on across our part of the world. Another round of snow showers and flurries is with us to start the new week. I know, I know… ENOUGH! 🙁

Today’s snow showers are coming in behind a HUGE storm system to our northeast. Check out how massive this thing is:

Some light coatings are possible on elevated surfaces, but most of the flakes should be melting. Highs  will only be in the upper 30s and low 40s, but wind chills may stay below freezing for much of the day.

Another hard freeze is on the way for Monday night and Tuesday morning as temps drop into the middle and upper 20s. Milder winds will boost afternoon temps into the 60s for most areas, setting the stage for a windy and mild Wednesday:

Those 70s are in front of another cold front dropping in Wednesday night. That may touch off scattered showers and storms, but the big news will be the temp drop coming behind it. Highs on Thursday may be nearly 30 degrees colder:

Temps will rebound a bit behind that to start the weekend, but another slow-moving storm looks to roll across the region. Here’s an animation showing both systems to impact our weather over the next week:

That could bring some more ugly weather our way. But, we have some ugly already going on today. Here are your tracking toys:
