Wet Snow, Rain On The Way…March 30th, 2012 at 6:36 pm by Tony Petrarca under Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
If you dont like snow, especially this time of year, you’re in luck as we are not expecting alot.
Its 51 degrees right now as I write this..so how can it snow if its mild. When forecasting precipitation type, we look at the the temps not just near the ground, but several thousand feet up. The air high above is cold enough to support some snow for a time. The temps near the ground will eventually cool off later Tonight. This all points to a period of some wet snow before a change over to plain rain later Saturday Morning.
The snow will not stick to all surfaces overnight…pavement and road temps should be mild enough for most snow to melt on contact. However colder surfaces like car tops, grassy areas and patio decks, the snow will accumulate, but only small slushy amounts.
