A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Week of March 30: Snow Still In the Forecast

It's nearly April and we're still seeing plenty of opportunities in the forecast for snow events. All of the upcoming chances for snow will be minor and not impact school in any way, but they are still worth writing about.

Winter will just not quit. Here's what's in store this week:

*A chance of half-inch or so tonight (Sunday). The overnight snow could resemble the snow we received on Saturday. Roads will be fine (except in the higher elevation spots) but we could see it stick on the grassy/snowy areas.

*Thursday night we will see a chance at rain or snow. This threat is less clear, and if we get precipitation at all, it will be very light.

*Friday night into Saturday could be snowy. Even though the temps will hit 50+ degrees on Friday, we could see snow Friday night into Saturday morning. The models are in disagreement about this surge of moisture, so you'll have to check in later in the week for more details about it.

*Easter Sunday looks cold but precipitation free.

We still believe there will be at least one more close call for a delay or snow day before Winter is finally over.  With temps staying below average this long into March, that threat of a potent spring snow storm is higher than most years. It looks like we'll have at least two more weeks of this cooler than normal weather before a major warm-up in mid-April.

Keep those galoshes handy this week!
