Thursday March 7 2019

We are still in the deep freeze and the ground is cold. That is the one thing that brings us into this next snow event differently than last weekend. It will snow on Friday, mostly during the day. But it is March, and the sun angle plays a big role. If this was at night or earlier in winter we would have a nice little event on on hands. Instead, I think we need to look at last weekend for the locations and timing of how the snow was received on the ground.

First, let’s look at today’s weather

How Much Snow?

Most of this will be on the grass or snowpack already in place 


It is important to consider the season. The higher sun angle does play a role warming the pavement. With temperatures near freezing, there may be some stickage at the start. The ground is already cold. But the solar angle should win the war in pavement.

How to Describe This:

I’ve been trying to come up with something that might help elaborate on this snow…

  • More bark than bite
  • Ambience snow
  • Wet roads during the day
  • Stickage on snowpack or grass
  • *This might be an extra coating on the ski resorts
  • More show and less glow
  • Waste of flakes


Forecast Animation

After the Friday snow, rain will arrive Saturday night and end Sunday morning.

This is timing out to be a little earlier. It may be done before afternoon… and temperatures will be warming up.
