The warmth is coming to an end and we will be getting a dose of winter reality this weekend that will last until around the 21st of January. After another period of warm weather, we should expect the cold to return, perhaps colder and longer, in February
The cold and snow will be preceded by rain on Thursday. Overnight Thursday, the rain will change over to snow. Depending on the time of the change-over will dictate how much snow we get. My guess is that we will end up with about 2-5″ of snow by the time it wraps up on Saturday. More showers will occur later on Saturday adding another 1-3″ of snow overnight into Sunday.
The period through January 21st will bring more frequent snow.
