Tomorrow starts Meteorological Spring!! Woo hoo! And, there is hope in the forecast for warmer temps, it’s just not this weekend. A chilly Saturday with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be around 15-20 degrees below average right around the freezing mark. By tomorrow, we're tracking a weak storm that could bring slick roads across the region with a wintry mix of snow/sleet and freezing rain. There are still some questions on exact timing. Right now it looks like snow will be possible to start west of the blue ridge in the morning with accumulations only around 1” As the moisture spreads into the metro some time midday, it will be a mix with some freezing rain (falls as rain, ices on contact with roads, cars, etc.). Depending how quickly it moves it will determine how bad it gets. The earlier it gets here, the worse off we will be. If it holds off til mid afternoon, there won’t be much time for ice to collect before it changes to rain. Precipitation will amount to about ¼” . Temperatures will warm up in the evening and overnight for all rain at that time. By Monday morning, we should be done with it and temperatures waking up around 35 degrees. Will have to watch closely for the morning commute, but right now I think the moisture cuts off in time with temps just warm enough to avoid problems. The next wave comes in on Tuesday with a mix of snow/sleet/rain late with all rain and MUCH warmer temperatures on Wednesday. 60 is a good bet. YES! Rain should end by Thursday morning followed by colder temperatures in the 30s again.
