Round 2: Rain and Snow showers

gfs_slp_072mIt seems like we won’t be getting a break anytime soon from the ever changing weather.  We’ve all heard about what’s happening in California and what they have been going through for the past 4 days. Well it looks like we’ll have a chance to see that system by this weekend. Here is what we know so far… This area of low pressure will bring us warm and humid air by this Saturday and Sunday thanks to strong southerly winds. By Saturday we could experience the upper 30s and a few lower 40s as this system draws closer… there is the warmth part. Now for the moisture… the cold front that is accompanying this low will create moderate to heavy rainfall thanks to all the gulf moisture. Now take the moderate to heavy rainfall and a melting snow pack… that means we’ll have to watch out for localized flooding.  After that is all said and done, cold Arctic air will wrap around the low and start changing our rain showers into snow showers by Sunday afternoon. This snow appears to last through the first half of next week.   So you’ll need your umbrellas for Saturday and then snow shovels from Sunday to next Wednesday.
