Spring Break!

It's a spring break - but it might not be what you think. Spring is actually taking a break for the next few days, with more cold weather and a few snowflakes!

To see snow in late March isn't unheard of, but to have several chances for snowflakes in late March and even going into early April is a bit more unusual for the area. Another storm will be sliding toward the mid-Atlantic Tuesday night and into Wednesday. As this moisture spreads into some cold air that will be in place, rain showers could mix in with some snow late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. The higher terrain, especially above 2000 feet, could see minimal accumulation. Elsewhere, the snow will be limited to a few flakes here and there, with temperatures staying a few degrees above the freezing mark. All precipitation will change over to rain by the middle of the morning.

But wait, there's more! Yet another storm will head our way on Thursday into Friday. There are some indications that Thursday night and early Friday morning we could see a few more snowflakes. This scenario will bring an area of low pressure up the eastern seaboard and depending on how much cold air is in place, rain could change over to snow late Thursday night. Again, there isn't much threat for accumulation here, but we will keep a close eye on it. Lots of uncertainty remains on the exact path of the storm and the amount of cold air. We will tweak this forecast over the next day or so - stay tuned!

If you're tired of all the cold weather, hang in there! Warmer air will move in for the weekend and next week. Speaking of spring breaks, what's your favorite travel destination when the weather begins to warm up? Mine is the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Leave yours in the comments section!
