more cold wet weather


– a few places overnight saw the snow band, However convection robbed the moisture needed to produce this snow band

1. The next in a series of systems will bring another increase in clouds and a period of rain Tuesday night. Some areas in the far north may mix with snow as lows there will be in the mid 30’s, no impact expected with any wintry precip. Overall expecting precip totals around 1/4 inch of liquid. Highs should get into the 50’s Tuesday and around 50 Wednesday. I expect the rain to end early Wednesday with cloudy skies the remainder of the day.

2.  A blocking pattern will continue with high pressure over the great lakes providing cold flow with storms moving  from the  northwest diving southeast into the southern plains and off the east coast. The next one Brings a chance of rain for Thursday with lows in the 30’s and highs near 50.  Also this will be watched for a mix.  As for a big storm I think this will be similar to several times this past winter, to many systems will be competing over the same region, only so much energy over a given area.

3. Disturbances will continue to move through the region into the weekend. A disturbance Friday morning brings a chance of rain or snow with lows near 32 and highs in the 40’s. Saturday doesn’t much better with similar temps and a chance for rain or snow showers. I see many forecasts going in line with the ECMWF or even warmer later this week umm. I’m seeing sub-540 thickness overcast skies, nw flow and precip. As the LMK discussion says a lot will do with trough position . After this I do see one last false warm-up for a few days that is followed by another chill then spring by Apr 10th. My thinking is we are baking by easter.
