Snow showers later this week

On October 22, 2013, in Uncategorized, by wx4sno

Sunday morning was the coldest day thus far this fall, we dipped to 36.3° F here in the higher elevations of Snowville. I was expecting even lower temperatures the next night, but conditions didn’t setup for it. Here at 2,600 feet we had some light winds which kept the air mixed and didn’t allow for good radiational cooling, thus we didn’t even fall below 39° F.

Looking towards mid-week…conditions turn even colder as Canadian air drops into the Midwest and pushes eastward.

850 mb Temperatures plunge late-week

Snow showers possible later this week

Temperatures overnight will fall into the upper-20′s with high’s in the 40′s.  There is also the likelihood that we’ll see some snow flurries or possibly snow shower in the higher terrain of the NRV and Mountain Empire Thursday night into Friday with northwest flow.  Not expecting any snowfall amounts unless you’re in the WV mountains…but still our first sight of snow since last winter!

We’re definitely in the fall transition period.  Over the next couple weeks we’ll likely see several rounds of cold Canadian air trying to push into the lower 48 separated by warmer periods of a few days.
