Here we go again another fast moving wave of low pressure will pass to our south on Saturday touching off cold rain and snow depending upon location. I am not in the “believer camp” this time around as climatology is not on our side, nor is the fact that every storm this year has had a tendency to produce the heftier snowfall totals well north, west, east or south of the immediate metropolitan area.
Image below is the latest European EPS for potential snowfall accumulation on Saturday. The EPS is the model you want to be looking at that averages out all varying solutions, it is not an official forecast. The EPS updates every 12 hours and will continue to change until the individual operational models are able to accurately predict the track and precipitation intensity of Saturday’s system.
I won’t believe anything I hear or see (for a forecast) until Saturday morning. It’s April … the chances of accumulating snow (more than a slushy inch are hard to come by this time of year).
