Blog: Rain overnight, then tidal flooding and snow on Wednesday

Weather
TUESDAY AFTERNOON PATTERN - BETWEEN TWO LOWS_719254

Rain is likely tonight as an area of low pressure slides across our area.

TUESDAY MORNING PATTERN

It’ll bring lots rain…mainly after Midnight. The rain will continue (heavy at times) through daybreak Tuesday morning.

RAINFALL CHANCES TONIGHT

Rainfall estimates will range from about an 1″ for most areas, but up to 2″ of rainfall is possible.

RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS THRU TUESDAY PM

As the low moves away, the rain will taper off through the afternoon and early evening.  However, another stronger low will move in behind the 1st one… crossing overnight Tuesday into Wednesday AM.

TUESDAY AFTERNOON PATTERN - BETWEEN TWO LOWS

This 2nd low will have plenty of moisture affiliated with it, and as it moves away…colder air will meet up with the moisture.

WEDNESDAY EARLY AM PATTERN

So, we’re expecting a chilly rain early Wednesday, but it should become a wintry mix by Midday through early afternoon.  Then, we’re expecting a full switch over to snow by late Wednesday afternoon…lasting into the evening.

WEDNESDAY EVENING PATTERN

As of now, It looks like 1″ -2″ are possible for the Southside…with higher amounts as you move north of the Southside.  We’ll continue to watch the forecast models and fine-tune the forecast tomorrow…so stay tuned.

ACCUMULATIONS FORECAST

Also, it’s important to note that based on the persistent NNE wind, near Moderate Tidal flooding (5.3′) is possible with Wednesday morning’s high tide.  Expect rising water a couple of hours on either side of high tide time.

TIDE FORECAST

Again, stay tuned to the forecast tonight through tomorrow.  There will be some changes, and we want you to stay well aware.  However, as of now, we ARE expecting some snow accumulations for Wednesday.

By the Way… we’re welcoming the 1st Day of Spring on Tuesday!
