Quick hit of clipper snow this morning, then few rain/snow showers.

Grassy & elevated accumulations will occur in parts of the area (including bridges & overpasses).

Shorter-range, high-resolution U.S. HRRR & NAM models side-by-side below with thier projected accumulations:

U.S. HRW WRF-ARW & HRW NMMB model projected snowfall:

Threw Canadian RDPS model in here too:

Any accumulation won't last long as temperatures warm 38-44 for highs by late afternoon.

After a cool upcoming week with 20s at night, heavy frost, even a few rain & snow showers, Thursday, Friday & Saturday look great with sun & warmth & a lack of wind!  Best weather since early Fall!

Although we may have a few periods of showers/t'storms Sunday-Friday (March 24-29) with even some severe weather risk, it will be warm!  Main period of severe weather risk to monitor is Friday, March 29 after perhaps just a little bit of risk Wednesday, March 27.

Overnight lows will be in the 50s & 60s with multiple days in the 70s.  I think a night or two may see lows only around 61-65!

After the warmth & showers/storms with severe risk, it does look quite cold March 30 with temperatures in the 30s with some rain/snow, followed by frost & freezing at night March 31-April 2.  The afternoon temperatures on March 30 with an overcast sky projected & northwest wind 25-40 mph are only 34-38 with rain/snow to even all snow at times, around.

Nice warmth of 70s should return after that..........& pretty rapidly, too.  There will be a lot of severe weather in the Plains April 4-5 & we may get in on severe weather around April 6.
