There are lots of blue spots on the weather map this week as we see a major cool down with some potential for legit snow in several areas. In fact, the next two weeks are expected to be below average temps in most of the country. Check out when and where below!
This week kicked off with a major storm system in Indiana that moved across Kentucky and eastward with damaging winds and large hail. Showers from that front move up into New England today. Once it hits the cold air, there is potential for snow in Maine and snow pellets in other parts of the northeast. No big time accumulation is expected unless you’re well up into New England, but it will be a big shock to the system after it’s been so warm for so long!
Watch out Maine! Up to 16 inches of snow is expected to come your way!
Saturday we expect to see more showers moving through in the central parts of the country. One system will come up from Texas and Louisiana moving northeast, and another system will brew up in Iowa and Illinois and go primarily east across Indiana and the Ohio Valley. These systems will have more warmth to them so we just expect rain, no snow excitement.
But don’t rest too easy… another trough of low pressure in the Rockies will be digging out and moving east on Sunday. As it moves east and hits the cold air around the Great Lakes, it could create an actual snowstorm for the Upper Midwest early next week. The combination of very cold air with the low-pressure center creates very interesting potential, so be on your toes if you are in that area!
