Wednesday March 9 2021
The weather is like a see-saw in March across the US. When there is a warm up on one coast, there is usually a big cool down on the other.
We are currently in the middle of our warm stretch we fondly labeled False Spring. Thursday will be the warmest of the week, and likely to bump higher than computer model guidance. But at the same time, a very cool air mass will be bringing snow to the mountains of Southern California.
That storm will lead to big time snow in the Rockies this weekend, then head our way with slushy snow for us early next week. Check this out:

On The Flip Side: So Cal Snow
While we are in the 70s, southern California will get rain, with snow in the mountains outside Los Angeles and San Diego! Snow levels may drop to 1,500 Ft!
Western US In The Winter Pattern:
Snow showers will spread through the mountain region, and evolve into a larger storm.
Sunday Snow Storm
I know, snow in the Rockies is normally not a big deal. But this one might make news headlines.
Areas near and north of Denver could get between 3 and 4 Feet of snow! Even for them, that’s a big deal.
NWS Denver/Boulder Alerts
The metro area of Denver will be looking at possibly 2 Feet of snow.
Tracking That Storm/Snow For US
Monday Afternoon Snapshot
I will NOT go out on a limb with s snow forecast. It is March and getting stickage requires a lot of special circumstances. But seeing snow fall is very likely.
I can promise you it will NOT be in the 70s!
Wednesday Snow Showers
Another disturbance will bring light snow or showers on Wednesday.
As soon as our false spring is replaced by false winter, we will warm up again by the end of next week.
You’ve got to love March in the Mid Atlantic.
