Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns

While there are no severe weather concerns in this forecast period, a hard frost is expected Wednesday and Thursday nights. Temps could even drop into the upper 20s by Thursday morning. Take note of this is you have frost-sensitive vegetation budding out.

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

Did I just say snow flurries were possible Wednesday morning? I sure did! If there’s any moisture left over (and that’s a big IF), there could be a snow flurry or two across the plateau Wednesday morning. We’ve had as much as a dusting of snow this time of year before, so who knows? We’ve even had snow flurries through the end of May.

I continue to see no signs of severe weather in the extended outlooks.

Today’s National Weather Map

Accumulating snowfall will be the greatest impact today in the country. That snow will fall across much of Montana and Wyoming, stretching down into Nebraska. That snow could be especially heavy for the Grand Tetons of Wyoming and for the mountains just west and northwest of Denver. More snow is expected to accumulated for northern Michigan, as well.
