It IS almost May… right?

Today’s blog graphic is what I’m looking forward to. I don’t want to talk about tomorrow’s weather, although I suppose I ought to… just don’t blame us for ugly weather! (Feel free to credit us when the weather is nice, however.)

A disturbance currently in the northern tier of the U.S. is slipping southward. It will be creating some lift, producing occasional rain showers. Since much of the atmosphere will be cool, some snow may mix in throughout the day. In fact, there’s enough lift (and possibly localized sunshine) that will cause isolated intense showers. If you find yourself under one of those, you’ll be dealing with a higher chance of snow (more rapid rising motion leading to more pronounced cooling aloft) as well as some small hail. In any event, no significant snow accumulations are expected due to the warm surface and wet nature of the snowflakes. Some sticking may occur on grassy areas or overpasses/bridges, but I doubt that’ll be a widespread issue.

Beyond that, the timing of the departure of clouds will impact how low our temperatures drop Tuesday morning. We’re looking at upper 20s/low 30s area-wide. This is obviously problematic for plants out there, so keep tabs on tomorrow’s forecasts for updates to the forecast low.

By the middle of the workweek, high pressure will be to our east, helping to give us more sunshine and a return flow. We’ll be back up around normal for at least a couple days.

    In DeKalb it started snowing really hard. The snow was in really big chunks and almost looked fake. It’s kind of slowed down a bit, the flakes aren’t as big anymore. I just thought it looked weird, especially on April 28th!
