Winter weather slowly shows up

Good Friday to one and all. We have a cold rain maker working across the state today, but Old Man Winter is trying to show up a little early this year. A few flurries may be noted tonight, but it’s a system early next week that has a better chance at delivering some winter stuff.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Cold rains are moving through, especially the first half of the day:

Temps take a big time tumble from late afternoon into the evening on Friday. Skies may dry for a bit then some wraparound moisture swings in from the northwest. That should be in flurry form, but the Hi Res NAM continues to show a few snow showers…

That’s likely overzealous with the snow shower action, so let’s just go with a few flurries for some areas.

Temps by Saturday morning are deep in the 20s with wind chills in the teens. Highs only reach the 30s, but it feels like the 20s all day long.

Nothing has changed with the potential system early next week. It’s a storm that rolls out of the Gulf and up the east coast. That may bring a swath of snow to our region later Monday into Tuesday:

Have a great Friday and take care.
