Few Showers Friday Night/Sat. AM, Continued CoolMay 3rd, 2014 at 2:15 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
I’ll leave radar here for early morning showers/sprinkles. The picture is from Travis Ulberg showing a last patch of snow in the Allegan woods on Friday. If you know of a little snow pile left, leave a comment – and if you can take a picture of it, you can send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a seminar at the National Weather Service today – I’ll update the blog in the evening. It’ll be a quiet weekend for storms across the U.S. The GFS plot has highs of 77° next Thurs. and 71° on Fri. – then it gets cool again. The model does not have any snow, but it does have a low of 36° on the 16th. The model would have showers late Weds. and rain and scat. storms from Thurs. night to Fri. night with Friday the wettest day of next week.
