Morning sunshine is beginning to give way to clouds, in advance of a warm front that is currently draped across central Pennsylvania.
No Forecast? Well, not actually No Forecast, but a forecast of No. No snow, no shoveling, no ice, no freezing rain, no storms tomorrow, no problem.
A soaking rain will overspread the region around midnight and continue, heavy at times, through Saturday.
Clouds are moving in ahead of a rain storm that will be impacting the Delaware Valley today. But with temperatures above 50° expected once again, who’s complaining???
If it is possible to make time fly as we did overnight, why does the weather just trudge along?
Big deal, it’s March. It might as well be January or February as the weather is stuck firmly in winter mode.
So apparently the weather has a calendar, and when it sees that it is the weekend, it brings on some kind of messy weather event. This weekend is no different.
A storm system currently over the deep south bringing rain and snow will track northeast off the southeast coast Thursday morning. The storm will brush our southern viewing area with a quick round of snow early Thursday morning.
Free water ice, everyone. All over the roads, the walkways, parking lots, steps, etc. No flavors except “ouch,” if you end up slipping on it.
The calendar says it all – if it is close to a weekend, than the weather is either lousy or getting there. This weekend is no exception.
After a morning with near-record lows and highs only in the teens (almost 30 degrees below average), we shift our attention to a storm brewing to the west that will bring another messy mixed bag of winter weather to the area late Saturday afternoon and evening.
As temperatures stay below freezing overnight, continue to be on the lookout for patches of ice on untreated surfaces into Tuesday morning.
Tired of these messy Monday’s? We sure are!
Expect rain showers to arrive overnight but change over to freezing rain, then light snow in the N&W suburbs from North to South on Monday, as colder temperatures return.
As we should be used to by now, we have another wet weather system moving in for Monday. This one, like the last several, will be short on snow and long on forecasting challenges.
