Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 6:39PM

Clouds Increase Late; More Snow Friday

After a clear start to our nighttime, clouds increase late tonight as a clipper-type low approaches and moves through Friday into Saturday. Snow showers return in the morning and continue on/off at times through Friday night tapering to flurries Saturday morning and ending by lunchtime. Clouds decrease Saturday afternoon. The next round brings another dusting to 2" for most of us with the higher elevations picking up an additional 2"-4". However, below 4000' accumulating snowfall is a nighttime feature (Friday night). Marginally cold temperatures and a high sun angle will eat daytime snow as it falls. Refer to our snow forecast map for details. Less cold air returns Sunday. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Quick moving low pressure that moved out of the Dakotas today drops into the Ohio Valley Friday and exits to the Mid-Atlantic coast Saturday. Clouds increase late tonight and snow showers return Friday morning and stick around on/off at times until Saturday morning. Reinforcing cold air keeps it very cold through Saturday. Clouds decrease Saturday afternoon.

High pressure brews over the Southeast Sunday and becomes positioned in the western Atlantic the first part of next week. Meanwhile, low pressure starts to slowly gain steam in Texas Monday eventually moving to the Great Lakes Wednesday. Seasonal temperatures return Sunday.

Light showers return Monday night and we're kind of in a holding pattern Tuesday waiting on more significant rain. There will be some showers at times Tuesday, but steadier rain is a feature late Tuesday night through the day Wednesday. Temperatures get a big boost thanks to a mild southwesterly flow those days. Colder air returns Thursday as the low makes it to the Lakes and brings a cold front through the region.
