We woke up to a little snow this morning but as we expected it wasn’t that big of a deal. Roads were a bit dicey for a while this morning however conditions will continue to improve. In fact, by this afternoon temperatures will be near 40.
There are two other weather systems we will be watching over the next couple of days. The first will move through on Thursday. This clipper-like system will move through the Great Lakes then slide into New England bringing us a bit of light snow or snow shower activity Thursday afternoon. This system is moisture starved and will likely just reinforce the seasonably cold temperatures more than anything else.
The next system that bares watching will move at us for Saturday. This storm is bringing record snows to the Pacific Northwest. Places like Seattle and Portland, Oregon could pick-up over a foot of snow. Keep in mind the average annual snowfall for both Seattle and Portland is under 10″. This storm will weaken as it moves east and by the time it reaches us it will be a shell of itself. However, here’s the catch. Once this system hits the mid-Atlantic it will develop into a big storm. Right now it looks as though this development will happen a little to late to hit us however this system, more than most this season, definitely needs to be watched closely. As of now it looks as though it will pass harmlessly out-to-sea but stay tuned!
Have a great morning!
