Surface low and front tracking through the region this evening/night will continue to produce showers and a slight chance for stray t-storms (best chance for storms will be south of the Metro). As the low tracks east overnight winds will switch out of the north, opening the door to some cold air. This will give us a chance for a few wet snowflakes between 2-4 AM Friday (NO ACCUMULATION!). It will be a race between the cold air arriving in time and will there still be moisture to work with...
Melissa brought up a philosophical question during the 6 o'clock news... "If we get a few flakes overnight while everyone is asleep does it really count as snow?" :)
Here's the 850mb chart for early Friday morning... 850 temps are marginal for a few wet snowflakes and there does appear to be a little moisture still hanging around.
We will clear out quickly by mid morning Friday, but will remain cool in the northerly flow. Sunshine and warmer Saturday, then more showers on Sunday. Right now it appears a blocking weather pattern will set up next week giving us plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures.
