Snow and cold temps still on track for Friday night

Good evening,

Not much has changed from my morning post regarding the temperatures, but I did read a mention in the evening forecast discussion from NWS regarding the potential for a period of maybe accumulating snow Friday night east of the Blue Ridge. They don’t say it that way, believe me they want a back door if it doesn’t happen, but I agree with time on this. There is a chance the temps will be about right Friday night for some snow to accumulate and cause some road problems. NWS says it this way:

Friday night…

A strong cut off upper level low will continue to stretch from the
Great Lakes into southeastern Canada. A disturbance rotating around
this low will pass through Friday night. As this system moves
through…a coastal low is expected to develop before it races off
to the northeast Saturday morning. The uncertainty lies in how fast
the coastal system can develop before it moves out to sea. Our
current thinking is that rain/snow develops Friday night with the
best chance for steadier precipitation across lower southern
Maryland during the overnight. Problems from wintry precipitation
east of the Blue Ridge mountains will be most likely late Friday
night into early Saturday morning when enough cold air can work
its way into the system for a possible period of snow before the
precipitation ends.

It’s April in the Blue Ridge!

Have a good evening and more on Friday,

Tommy
