Mark’s weather report

There has been a significant change in the forecast leading to more intrigue this weekend. Yesterday’s model runs showed a one-two storm punch coming through this weekend. The first and weaker system moves in Saturday with isolated showers. The second system scrapes the NE with a cold front as well. This system looked better than the first but hardly a big timer.

Now the models sing a bit of a different tune. Storm #1 still looks week and will be mainly a wind maker on Saturday. But Sunday’s storm (#2) drops farther into the state leading to a better chance of rain in the metro up through the NE. The mountains will get a better shot at snow as well.

Look for winds to ramp up in the metro late Sunday as a cold front squeezes through the east mountains. Then the low will kick through enhancing the chance of showers Sunday night into Monday. Heavy snow will develop over the northern mountains especially the east slopes during this same time. Snow will continue into Monday afternoon before tapering off.

One caveat for the metro will be the east winds. They will crank up about the time the precip comes in. An east wind precipitation shadow is possible. Stay tuned.
