While spring is in the air today it will not last long. We are tracking a winter storm that will drop upwards of 6″ of snow in some locations Saturday night into Sunday. Tomorrow a cold front will move across the area during the day bringing some chilly conditions to the area. The system will tap in to moisture and and the low will move up the coast. The storm will produce snow, mixing and rain across parts of the area. Majority of the precipitation will fall in the overnight hours Saturday into Sunday. While we are expecting accumulating snow, the final totals are still unclear at this time. The snow won’t last around long, as we have 60s-70º temps coming early next week!
