Chilly Saturday, Watching WednesdayJanuary 25th, 2014 at 9:11 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
The clouds are here for this Saturday. Today we are going to see a chilly wind from the southwest at 15-20mph and gusts up to 30mph today. The OBX may see gusts over 40mph. This is part of a cold front that is approaching us from the north.
There is a small chance for flurries across the Peninsula and north this afternoon. No accumulations are expected. This will be part of another fresh batch of cold air moving in for tomorrow. For our Sunday it looks like the win should be a bit calmer with speeds at 10-15mph from the west. Mostly sunny skies and temperatures near 35 degrees is what we should count on for tomorrow. Looking ahead to this upcoming week, there is a storm complex we are watching closely.
The latest model keep the storm system offshore, including the European model which had us originally in a band of heavy snow. This is a classic example how looking at weather models can change day to day. Yesterday it said 7-8″ of snow. Today, 0″. Now which one should we believe? Well today’s solution is is in more agreement with the GFS and a few others except the Canadian which still keeps the snow a bit closer to the area. I am keeping the snow chances pretty slim right now for Wednesday except for the Outer Banks. Remember we are over 100 hours away from Wednesday, and the models may change yet again!
We will continue to track the changes over the next few days.
