It's time for the holiday weekend and we have the spots to watch for weather-related impacts when traveling. Here's a look at the bigger picture of forecast precipitation, both rain and snow in green and blues respectively, from early Saturday morning through Monday evening (31st to 2nd).
Forecast precipitation through Monday evening, April 2.
The snowiest spots will be to the north, closer to the Canadian border as a strong low pressure system brings a quick, yet heavy blast of snow on Saturday the 31st. This will mainly impact the Upper Midwest with low visibility and then very cold air by Easter Sunday morning. Another low exiting the Rockies Saturday afternoon will drift southeast through Nebraska, Missouri, and the Ohio Valley Sunday morning through Sunday night. That has the potential of a quick (relatively light) hit of snow! Thus to the north, watch and be mindful of slippery roads due to snow and wind, also colder air. To the south a few rain showers are possible during the weekend for parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Tennessee, as well as South Florida.
Now we are going to take a look at the region-by-region forecast for the next few days for select cities. We'll go to cities along the northern tier of the country that will find wetter weather, then down to the drier locations to the south. Take a look below to find your expected high temperature and sky condition!
