From the National Weather Service forecast discussion….

Scroll down to Weather Synopsis and click on Full Forecast Discussion for the full story.

Summary:
Freezing rain Monday morning, then warming up to all rain Monday afternoon.
Possible light snow overnight Wednesday/Thursday into Valentine’s Day Thursday
Possible all-snow storm Saturday/Sunday, President’s Day Weekend.

Details:
“ACTIVE PATTERN CONTINUES THROUGH THE COMING WEEK…WITH MULTIPLE LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEMS PASSING NEAR ENOUGH TO THE NORTHEAST TO HAVE AN
IMPACT.”

The NWS is looking at a freezing rain event for Monday morning, becoming all rain by mid-morning or afternoon.
The good news that that the freezing rain is where and when the rain is lightest, so the salt-spreaders may be able to keep the roads in good shape.
The bad news is that if the rain is moderate to heavy and temperatures rise to the mid-40s as expected, flooding will be possible, aided by melting snow and runoff blocked by the piles of snow.

The NWS has a eye out for a possible storm Wednesday/Thursday that is looking more likely now, with a mainly snow event – but light snow, perhaps mixing with rain only at the shoreline.

Then Saturday/Sunday looking like a snow event, but way to far out to talk about how much snow or when the snow will occur. The forecast models vary on when the elements that make the storm happen will get here.

Winter has finally arrived. Just when many of us thought would could be done with winter amd move on to Spring.
