Accumulating Snow In The Forecast Friday.


As of 8am Wednesday…. High pressure is building over Canada forcing the jet stream south. A very active weather pattern is evolving and we will start to feel the impacts this Friday. Below average temperatures are likely for the next two weeks.

An upper level low pressure system will move from the plains to the southeast United States Thursday. The core of this upper low will deliver cold air aloft but the surface temps will remain marginal. As precipitation moves in sometime Thursday Night into Friday Morning the last 3000 ft to the surface should be well above freezing. This may lead to a period of rain before the atmosphere dynamically cools from top to bottom due to evaporational cooling. The upper low will transition its energy to a coastal low. As the coastal low develops it will ride Northeast, taking the precipitation with it by Saturday Morning.

Generally it is going to be hard to get the larger totals that you will see referenced in the Weather Matrix. Our forecast totals look to be well done right now and I see no reason for adjustment at this time. Our snow meter will remain at a 2 for now but depending on data through the day today, that may go up tonight. Stay tuned.
