It looks like the first couple days of March could roar in like a lion (so I guess that also means it ends with a wimper). We’ll see. Let’s get to the roaring part for now.
An extremely complex pattern will make the forecast details tricky, but in general, we can safely say that a significant storm will eventually be taking shape near the Southeast coast later in the weekend. The details are sketchy because two factors coming into play, the track and the amount of cold air infiltration, will not be well-defined until shortly before all of this shakes out.
At the very least, we will finally get some beneficial rainfall from a preliminary storm during the beginning of the weekend. The questions arise from the second storm.
For snow lovers, at best you could see some snow, mainly from Sunday night into Monday. At worst, moisture skirts past our area to the south, and we’re left with very little precipitation.
Portions of the interior Carolinas could hit the jackpot, with significant snowfall possible. Stay tuned for the latest on our main forecast discussion page.
