Weather Rollercoaster


First off, we were under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning this afternoon and with it came some hail.

Now onto the forecast.   Today we are going to continue to see showers and thunderstorms roll through.  Now as we go through the evening, its going to get a little tricky.  Depending on the temperatures we are going to see a mix of rain and snow tonight, we could see up to a half inch of snow. Then, tomorrow another half inch is possible.

In the top right image, there is a low situated to our north.  Also, notice the line in the bottom right, that is the rain/snow line.  We are going to see small accumulations as we go through the night tonight.  Again, it all depends on the temperatures   Northern counties will likely see more snow. There is tons of moisture and because of the temperature the snow is going to be a wet and slushy consistency if we see any.

Forecast:

Monday: Rain showers likely, could mix with snow.  Highs in the mid 30s.  Could see snow anywhere up to one inch.

Tuesday: Highs in the upper 30s, 30% chance of rain.

Wednesday: Clear skies, highs in the mid 40s.
