It’s been a rollercoaster ride of weather over the last few weeks.
Extreme cold, followed by a warm-up, then heavy snow, which was followed by a calm week. Now, we’re learning that a second, less-intense thaw is coming, which will result in warmer temperatures, but a more-controlled melt of the snowpack.
FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil said that as temperatures warm this weekend, a passing flurry or shower is possible — but nothing significant. Significant sunshine will be prominent on Saturday, as temperatures push above 40 degrees.
Conditions will improve again on Sunday with temperatures pushing higher. However, as next week begins winds and possible rain will increase the chances of ice jams. While specifics of this will take time to identify, Montreuil says that models suggest now that the pattern will hang on into next week.
