After the spring weather this past weekend, the snow showers this morning probably had you doing a double take. Unfortunately, it’s a reality check that we’re only in the middle of March. Winter isn’t over yet!
Northwest wind flow and minimal moisture content at the surface is being enhanced by an upper level disturbance today. Snow showers will continue off and on today but accumulations are going to be on the low side. Intervals of sunshine are possible, mainly in the eastern portion of the region, but in general it will be on the cloudy side. Very gusty winds will keep a lid on temperatures as well.
Another disturbance aloft moves through overnight. Snow showers will pick up in intensity while you’re asleep, but once again accumulations will be minimal. By tomorrow morning only the higher elevations near the NC/TN border are looking at any snow on the ground, and even then it will only be a couple inches at best.
A break in the action is in store for tomorrow. Sunshine prevails for most of the day but that pesky northwest wind will continue to keep temperatures on the chilly side.
A quick moving clipper system will pass through Thursday night. Increasing clouds late Thursday will be a prelude to a period of light snow showers overnight. A changeover to rain will occur somewhat quickly though and precip of the liquid variety will greet you Friday morning before tapering off by midday. We’ll then see things briefly calm down and tempeartures will moderate to near normal levels for this time of year.
A backdoor front will move into the region on Saturday and linger into the first part of next week. Showers are possible each day and temperatures will be near normal.
