Saturday is looking wintry. As temperatures tumble today from 50 to 30 tomorrow, a frontal boundary to our south will form a wave of precipitation. This is very light. Some places may not even experience anything, especially further south from Dover on south. This will be a mix of snow, freezing rain, and sleet. The combination will produce anywhere from slushy roads to a coating at night. Saturday night looks iffy to go out in a car. Yet, be careful if you do. This is not a BIG snow/ice producer. Nothing what they will be experiencing out in the mid-west. Then we go to a big warm/thaw next week with lots of rain. So much is winter in Delaware !! :}
We have gone from 0 to 60 in a matter of 72 hours. That’s almost one degree an hour. Amazing! Last week we just started a major cold snap, followed by a mini-snowstorm, and now it’s like a March day. Only in Delaware!
Yet, the fun can’t last as a cold front will be coming through starting tomorrow. This will drop temperatures. Then another front moves in for the weekend. This coming precipitation is part of a MAJOR STORM that will blanket the mid-west and plains states with a MAJOR ICE STORM. Kansas City, the whole state of Kansas, then move north, etc.. will experience perhaps the nightmare winter precipitation-ICE!. We are talking life coming to a literal stop. This will be crippling. Please pray for those impacted. If you have family out that way, tell them not to drive or go out anywhere this weekend. It’s going to be a nightmare.
As for us, this system will bring a light array of precipitation starting Saturday morning. We could get a combination of snow, followed by freezing rain, back to snow, sleet. We could see upwards to an inch of snow, and .10 inch of ice. The details will need to be watched. I will do that for you. More clarity will come tomorrow.
