Warm Up Mid Week, Late Week Storminess?

Clouds will increase tonight as a cold front approaches. A few snow showers/flurries are possible after midnight with temps dropping into the upper 20s to low 30s.

You will feel a breeze kick on Monday with winds gusting up to 30 mph. High pressure will provide partly to mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s. An approaching warm front will trigger a period of light snow after midnight. Although little accumulation is expected, a fresh coating of snow could make the roads slippery Tuesday morning. Snow ends early Tuesday with partial clearing. Temps will warm into the upper 40s! Wednesday looks even milder with temperatures in the 40s to near 50 and a few showers around.

The forecast for the late week is a big question mark right now. One of our important computer models (the Euro) shows a wintry mix for Thursday while others keep the forecast dry and sunny. There is also a chance for a bigger storm this weekend with snow inland and a mix on the shore. Of course it’s too soon to get into specifics. I expect to see big swings in the track over the coming days. It could miss us entirely! I'll keep you posted!

wow this is the first I've heard of a possible weekend snow event. I hope it's a big HIT! Winter is almost over, I'm dying for a 6"+ snowstorm!
