Most of us are over winter (although it was mild) BUT we still have some snow lovers out there. This one’s not for you.

Our last weekend of winter will go out uneventful as we’re expecting little if any snow accumulation from this one. Although it DOES look ominous to our west, watch how it begins to fade as it moves east:

This storm will lay down 5-8 inches of snow across portions of Nebraska, but the entire system will be weakening and sinking southeast as it moves through the Ohio Valley. The result will be some light accumulations downstate, but nothing to write home about. Here at the models:

It also becomes increasingly more difficult to get accumulating snow this time of year–the higher sun angle and mild temps tend to keep us snow-free during the daylight hours. This will be the case with temps in the mid and upper 30s, any snowflakes that fall won’t cause any issues on area roadways.

In terms of timing we could see some scattered pockets of snow showers move in during the day Saturday and continue in a scattered nature through early Saturday night. Many of us will just experience cloudy skies. Beyond that we have several brief shots at spring-like air next week!
