"..and Still They Come..."

Friday, 3/25/2011, 8:45 AM EDT

A series of storm systems will push ashore in the Northwestern U.S. over the next couple of days. The first system has arrived and will move into the central Great Basin this morning and will send Pacific moisture from the coast into the Rockies.

Snow totals of 2 to 4 inches will be possible across the region while areas in the California Mountains, a foot or more may fall.

The next storm system will come inland tomorrow, bringing heavy snow into the higher elevations of northern California and Oregon early Saturday. Wintry weather with strong winds will affect the Northern Plains and northern Central Plains early Saturday, as the moisture will over-run the cold air mass already in place.

Snow will fall from Montana into South Dakota and Nebraska, where depths could exceed 8 inches.

Lighter amounts will likely spread into Iowa and northern Missouri.

Weak scattered showers and thunderstorms may be possible in the Lower Mississippi Valley by tomorrow morning.

IT WILL SNOW THIS WEEKEND!  It is not something to get excited about however.  With warm ground temps and high sun angle there will be accumulations on grassy surfaces.  Maybe some limited slush on shaded sidewalks, but nothing to write home about.  I expectr 2-3 very slush inches going into Sunday am.  There is one final limited chane for a major snow event by the end of the week.  Odds are agaisnt heavy accumulation because everything has to go perfectly.  The end of the week has that POTENTIAL.  Either way, enjoy this week as far as snow is concerned, after this we will have to wait until next season.  This is SPRING snow, and it has little staying power, and everything has to go right to get a few hour blanket of white.  It will still be nice to see!

Sounds like I don't need to haul out the 'blower for this one? Best kind of snow right there. :)

Swing, batter. It figures this season would tease us with one more promising scenario that didn't play out like we thought.

See you all you powderhounds and mets next year. That is, barring any hurricane or severe storms, I'll stop back in for those.

All the best, stay safe! :-P
