Late Season Snowmongering

What’s today?  Is it March 15th? Oh no, it’s not…it must be the Ice of March.  r r r

I mentioned yesterday that the cold will return early next week…and now I’d like to mention that next Tuesday we’re in the running for another late season snowstorm.  Ironically, it was on March 24th of 1983 that RDU recorded it’s biggest snowfall so late in the season.  And there are several instances of late season snows clustered in the March 24-27th range over the years (with 1983 being the biggest at 7.3″).  And if you’re curious, the latest measurable snow of the season at RDU was April 18th with a little under 2″.

Of course, nothing is set in stone for early next week.  At this point,  the cold looks to return and there is ensemble modeling support for costal cyclogenesis.  The details will come into focus in the coming days.
