School Closings And Delays

Stormtracker 16 Meteorologist John Hickey

Our storm wraps up Wednesday night but not before dropping some localized totals in excess of 12″ of snow!  Wild to think that in less than a one hour drive you could go from seeing zero snow to over one foot.  The storm system will be well offshore on Thursday and Friday, but the incoming high pressure system behind it will create a fairly strong pressure gradient.  This will lead to a brisk Northwest wind in the 10-20 MPH range with higher gusts.  A couple of flurries are possible both Thursday and Friday.

High pressure moves in this weekend with ample sunshine but temperatures won’t warm up that much.  Some warmer air returns next week when highs in the 50s come back into the forecast Tuesday and Wednesday.  Your average high this time of year is 50 degrees.  Hard to imagine that as you cast an eye out the window at a pile of snow.

Thursday:  Mostly cloudy, brisk wind, few flurries.  High 40.

Friday:  Partly sunny, few flakes.  High 38.

Saturday:  Partly cloudy.  High 41.

Sunday:  Partly cloudy.  High 42.

Monday:  Partly cloudy.  High 45.

Tuesday:  Partly cloudy.  High 52.

Wednesday:  Cloudy, chance for rain showers.  High 53.
