- Strong storms are going to be possible, especially from I-40 southward.
- Sharp temperature gradient will exist across Region 8 Saturday afternoon.
- Coldest air of the season plunges in for Sunday.
- Some wintry weather is possible late Saturday.
- Any wintry weather would likely be sleet... with some snow late.
- Any wintry accumulation would likely be LIGHT.
- Timing of wintry precipitation would be Saturday night to Sunday morning.
Here's what the data shows for temperatures on Saturday at 6:00 PM. You can CLEARLY see the cold front:
Typically in these type of situations, the precipitation ends before the cold air arrives. That may not happen on Saturday night. We have a disturbance passing through after the cold front that could spark off some sleet and then snow. This is what radar could look like at midnight on Saturday night:
And then as we go toward Sunday morning, we may change to snow:
It's too early to talk about accumulations, but it appears that it would be LIGHT. If you have Sunday morning plans, you will want to watch this forecast over the next few days.
In summary, it's going to be really cold... then warm with storms... then cold with wintry mix... then just cold. My gut feeling tells me I'll be working extra over the weekend. Let's hope that changes.
Have agood night and I'll see yah tomorrow...
