Rain, wind, cold, and snow

A major shift in the weather pattern is expected later this week.

Posted: Apr 8, 2020 5:30 PM

Our luck was bound to run out at some point. After weeks and weeks of above average temperatures, the weather patterns are now going to change. It all starts Thursday as the next weather system moves into the region.

Low pressure will bring steady rain to our area Thursday morning. Rain looks widespread and moderately heavy. No flooding is expected, as most rainfall totals stay below 1". In the wake of this area of low pressure, the winds turn abruptly into the northwest. Peak wind gusts are expected between 30-40 mph Thursday afternoon and evening. Much colder weather will move into the region starting Thursday night.

A pool of unusually cold air settles over the Northeast on Friday. Widespread snow is expected throughout the day. Temperatures will remain above freezing, but not by much. It will be warm enough to keep any snow accumulation on the lighter side. Still, a few slippery spots can't be ruled out, especially along the higher elevations. Here's a look at the snowfall map:

The good news is the snow doesn't last. It is, after all, April. We'll dry out Saturday and start to warm up on Easter Sunday.
