Look for Spring Storm to Bring Snow After Daybreak
– March 24, 2014 3:30 pm
Winter will not leave, and our area is on notice once again that up to three inches of snow could blanket the ground.
The late-season storm is expected to move into the area Tuesday morning bringing with it snow. The snow could mix with some rain by Tuesday afternoon, and all of this will be out of the region by late Tuesday night.
But forecasters at the National Weather Service said these rare springtime snowstorms can be challenging. Tuesday’s forecast high temperature is 37 degrees for the area. If temperatures are warmer, we’ll see more rain than snow, according to the weather service.
Forecasters are watching two pieces of atmospheric energy moving toward our area. One is diving down into the Great Plains and the other is moving north from the Gulf of Mexico. The two will meet on the eastern seaboard and form a tropical cyclone, forecasters said.
The cyclone will be form far enough out to sea that is should not impact the Mid-Atlantic region as much as it could affect those in the Northeast.
Overall, look for snow to start after daybreak Tuesday, according to forecasters. No winter weather advisory has been issued for the region as of 4 p.m. Monday, but that could change later this evening.
