Good morning everyone! Yup that's right some areas can see some flakes tonight and they very well could be the last flakes of the season. In general this will not be an accumulating snow event unless you live in the interior above 700ft. Otherwise expect rain later today with some snow possible tonight when the sun goes down. The snow will not stick unless you are at that high elevation.
Since this is prob the last snow we see I had to make a map for old times sake..
Here is a good model projection of precip type for tonight at 8pm
This is a classic Alberta clipper that dives in from Canada. These types of systems never give big snowfall unless they redevelop off the coast and get ocean enhancement. This clipper will not do that.
I currently live at about 400ft in Morristown, NJ. During systems like this I always like to drive a few miles up the road to 1000ft to see the differences in precip type. It is not uncommon for it to be raining here when it snows up there with systems like this. This is all due to a warm surface layer due to the daytime heating of the late March sun. The increase in elevation relaxes that heating just enough to let the layer of air near the surface support the snow.
Moving on, this weekend I expect a rain storm for most areas..
This is from Friday night into Saturday. I will be in northern Vermont skiing so I am preying this will happen for one last great ski weekend.
Thanks for checking in guys, I will have some observations tonight when this clipper is underway.
