Clouds hang around this afternoon with a few showers possible as a warm front cuts through the area. So get ready for warmer, slightly more humidified forecast for the weekend. Little to no accumulation is expected, although areas along the coast (especially the east coast of Massachusetts) may have a slightly higher risk of accumulation because of ocean affect snow. Winds will be light on Saturday but will pick up again on Sunday.
The chance of rain will wrap up by daybreak on Saturday.
A quick, spotty shower is possible Saturday morning.
"Since we are at the tail end of March. the sun angle is higher up and giving us more radiation", he said. Highs will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s, which is about 10 degrees colder than normal. The rain and snow mix will move out during the morning hours on Sunday, but skies will remain mostly cloudy. Expect a partly cloudy sky with warm temperatures this afternoon. Other areas, especially eastern NY, saw clouds sooner and places like Whiteface were able to squeeze out some snow showers. If we delay the arrival of the rain until Easter Sunday or even later in the day on Sunday, that will stretch the rains into the first part of the 11-16 day window.
Lee Anderson of Fargo Public Works adds that temperatures will be back in the teens shortly after the weekend.
James Madden, a forecaster for Exacta Weather, told The Scotsman: "This could surpass the recent snow events and bring some of the heaviest snowfall we have ever seen at this time of the year or at Easter".
Temperatures stay mild in the 60's Monday and Tuesday, cooler 50's Wednesday and Thursday.
We'll begin to see a change Sunday as more moisture begins to roll in aloft and at the surface. A mostly sunny week ended with snow at some elevations-in some areas, mixed with rain-caused by, according to the National Weather Service (NWS)'s Seattle branch, an unstable air mass.
