SNOW FOR THURSDAY MORNING?

Last Updated

Let me answer the title question up front – I don’t think so.

All models keep the critical thickness levels too warm for snow formation here on Thursday morning.  What we may have is a brief period of sleet or freezing rain before changing to rain early and even that is in doubt.

Basically, there may be some ‘cold air damming’ which results in a cold lower layer, allowing sleet and icy conditions before a change over to rain.

We really won’t have a good handle on the thermal profiles for Thursday until Wednesday night.   But I felt I had to chime in, after hearing a hyped up forecast from the local TV weather people.

As mentioned, the models have been highly inconsistent over the past week.  If there’s any chance of more interesting weather, it might be with the departure of this system late Thursday or Friday morning.  Stay tuned.
