Heavy rain then a little snow

Good Saturday, everyone. We continue to see rounds of heavy rain pushing across the state and this action continues through tonight. Following this up will be a taste of winter weather coming Sunday night and Monday. That’s when a light snowfall is possible.

Today’s rain will be heavy at times as it comes at us in waves. A general 1″-2″ of rain will be likely through tonight. Locally higher amounts will be possible as a few thunderstorms try to join the party. Here are your radars to get you through the day:

 

Local high water issues will be possible.

Winds will also be gusty and could approach 40mph at times this evening and tonight as our southwest flow kicks in. That will cause our temps to rise into the 50s this evening and stay there into Sunday morning.

The rain ends early Sunday and we should see a few hours of sun before clouds quickly fill back in from the northwest. Rain and snow will then develop by late in the afternoon into the evening as our upper level disturbance drops in here. Wet snow will then fly Sunday night and it could be moderate at times. A northwest wind will then keep snow showers going through Monday across the eastern half of the state. Light accumulations will be likely across the region.

The Hi Res NAM only goes through 7am Monday:

Here’s the Hi Res NAM snow map through 7am Monday:

The NAM actually keeps flakes flying through Monday night:

The Canadian has been pretty rock steady with this for almost a week now:

The GFS continues to see the light snow potential more and more with each run:

The snow will likely be wet, but wind driven as gusts may reach 30mph as it snows.That’s going to make for some pretty cool snow scenes!

Those same winds will make it feel pretty darn cold:

Have a great Saturday and take care.
