After saying this several times, I am going to say it again: This winter is really frustrating.
For the last couple of days, several weather enthusiasts like myself have been baffled with the possibility of a snowstorm this Sunday.
Every model after the next has been part of this unsettling war, in that predicting such a system is extremely difficult and risky. The problem is warning the public about such a system.
On a lighter note, the storm is most likely going to move a little south making our region escape such a major impact on snow accumulations. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news for the snow lovers out there.
Today will be nice with clouds breaking way to partly sunny skies in the afternoon. High temperatures are expected to reach the upper 40s with some areas around 50 degrees. Winds will increase from the northwest blowing at 10 to 15 mph with gusts around 25 mph.
Tonight the winds will diminish and skies will be mostly clear. The temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s.
Tomorrow morning will be chilly with temperatures in the upper 20s. As the increasing height of the late February sun warms the region, expect temperatures to soar into the upper 40s with partly cloudy skies.
Tomorrow night, clouds will start to increase and there may be some showers after midnight. This has nothing to do with the possible storm approaching from the southeast. The temperatures will be in the mid 30s with calm winds.
Now onto the big day of Sunday. Clouds will thicken and temperatures will reach the mid 30s in the early afternoon, then quickly decreasing.
By the late afternoon, some snow should start to fall lightly. It is still too early to jump to conclusions, but the chance for accumulations above three inches is fairly low.
The system will move out by midnight Sunday bringing frigid temperatures in the low 20s with high winds.
This storm is one of those tricky systems and accurately predicting them is difficult. On an important note, Sunday is still 48 hours away and anything can happen so stay tuned.
