Tuesday March 7 – This evening report is about the rain and cold front tonight that will be the first of a two push wind machine. A large storm over north central Canada and trailing cold front passing through our region tonight will open the gates for arctic air to return and the most potential winter action all winter. But before getting in the snowy details and why I do not trust the computer modeling, we can’t skip over this system that is already showing itself.
You may have already noticed the winds whipping up with rain bands this evening. There good apart of this weather event is that the bulk of the rain will be overnight. A distinct cold front will pass through between 3 and 6 AM, before most was up. There will be a surge of winds up to 50 mph and possibly a rumble of thunder as it passes by. The cold winds will arrive later int he day and Wednesday night. That may prompt some advisories as winds could push over 50 mph. Even if not, considering the wind damage we have experienced recently, I wanted you to be aware.
Here is the rain timeline and other info. As for the snow, I still see some on Friday, but may be too warm to stick…. The rest I will elaborate on in my next report. I still have some homework and two boys to get in bed.
