For those keeping score at home yesterday’s forecast was blown forecast #3 for me this year. It turned out to be a beautiful day with light rain arriving much later than I had anticipated. I’ll try to do better today. Can you pardon me, please?
Temperatures will drop by about 10 degrees today, from an early morning high in the 60’s, under mostly cloudy skies. Clouds will thicken for tomorrow as the thermometer drops about 10 more degrees to a daytime high near 40 or so.
Temps will continue to plunge overnight as we head for a sunny day on Friday with a high temperature in the upper 30’s.
As luck would have it, for Delmarva snow lovers, there is a snow storm developing to our south that is expected to stay to our south. That’s right…southeast Virginia and North Carolina will see some snow and we will probably not! The system is expected to track off the coast and leave us close to bone dry…although some models give us a chance of a dusting. If the track changes in the next 24 hours I will be sure to let you know.
Higher on SNOW in mostly west/east NC w/now colder ECMWF. Decent compromise w/Ensembles from GFS & ECMWF below. Longest period w/ all snow gets accumulation prize which could exceed 4" Again, that's EXCEPTION not rule. Still details to iron out. Crash to snow starts Thurs. aft. pic.twitter.com/MftKQjenRF
