It’s Spring so in between systems it warms pretty quickly. It was in the 50′s today and will be again Tuesday. That will be interupted by a cold trough that will push in and sit a while starting Tuesday night.

There is not much moisture with this next cold front. We could see an inch or two Tuesday night with the passage of the cold front. Then cold air will hang around through Friday with the chance for scattered snow showers here or there but not really any accumulations. Keep the jackets handy because Wednesday and Thursday the highs should only be in the 30′s at lake level and 20′s up on top of the mountains.

The ridge will build in with warming temperatures next weekend. Meanwhile the next low will cut off and spin well off the coast into the beginning of next week. That will help to pump the ridge and it could get quite warm to start next week. Then the next upstream system looks like it could push the low inland the second half of next week. That could bring accumulating snows back and some colder air. Will have to watch the timing and strenth of the low as we get closer.

Then an break but the next system could push in the week of the 15th. The flow is much slower now with lots of cut-off lows which is common this time of year. Not only are they hard to forecast but the forecast models start to struggle more with the changing of the seasons. That always makes for an interesting month. I don’t think we’re done with snow quite yet and one of these storms will make it in here and give us another dump sometime in April. BA
