A Snowy Second Half of the Week WV 2-25-13

Morning cloud cover should thin shortly.  Enjoy the afternoon sunshine while you can because it might be the last time we see it for a while.  Clouds re-thicken overnight as our next weather maker approaches the region.

A strong low pressure system will make it’s way from Texas to the Ohio Valley over the next two days.  Precip begins overnight tonight and it will be in the form of freezing rain/sleet mixture thanks to a cold air wedge.  It’s a very similar, if not exact, setup to what we had last week.  The wintry mix continues into tomorrow and should changeover to all rain sometime around noon.  Showers will persist into tomorrow night.  The higher elevations and northern portions of the region could see this rain change to snow at night.

Wednesday through Sunday looks interesting.  Snow showers are in the forecast each day as the combination of cold air, upper level support, adequate moisture, and northwesterly winds will make for a pretty decent snow event.  The heaviest of snow will fall late Wednesday and Thursday but light snow showers will continue through the weekend.
