A little winter weather showing up

Good Wednesday to one and all. We have a small break in the active weather pattern, but that’s not going to last long. A return of the busy setup is on the way later this week and that’s going to carry us through next week. But, there’s a twist. Instead of only rain, we have winter weather chances also showing up.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Highs range from the upper 30s to low 40s with a gusty wind making it feel colder, but things are going to be dry.

Valentine’s Day looks milder as temps hit the 50s with clouds on the increase.

The active pattern returns with a cold front moving in Thursday night. That has showers ahead of it, with colder air coming in behind it. That colder setup forces the storm track farther south, bringing the chance for winter weather our way. To systems can bring winter weather this weekend, with another early next week.

The first arrives later Friday and early Saturday, with the next one Saturday night and Sunday, and the third by Tuesday. The models, as expected, change from run to run on the track of each, but it’s fun to watch:

The European Model has a swath of accumulating snow possible across the northern half of the state with the weekend systems:

Again, don’t take the numbers or track to heart because I assure you it will change over the next few days. I’m only showing this to illustrate how the storm track is focusing farther south, bringing snow chances back our way.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
