The wintry threat I’ve been monitoring for Sunday night now looks like a total cold rain event. We still may see some flurries Monday morning but I don’t expect any accumulation.
Another system will move in by Tuesday night and that could bring some wintry precip chances. I’ll keep an eye on that for you.
Meteorologist Mark’s Severe Wx Concern
This is not what you want to see if you want snow…..high confidence of little to nothing happening.
Details are sketchy concerning the Tuesday night/Wednesday system. There may be some wintry precip Tuesday night but I’m just not sure that will amount to much. Overall, my confidence has increased a bit toward us not getting much of anything. Stay tuned, as this forecast is still evolving.

More freezing rain is possible for Maine and portions of the Pacific Northwest (valley regions). Heavy snow will fall across the northern Rockies and across portions of the southern plains and northern Minnesota.
This is a pretty cool shot of Washington state’s Mt. Baker Friday evening. The photographer noted that fresh now and a setting sun made for a nice glow. (Photo by @wheeler244).
