Morning snow melts, but more precipitation coming later this week

Accumulating snow likely Easter Sunday

Snow will become less widespread and more showery this afternoon and will diminish altogether by tonight leaving behind clearing and drying conditions Tuesday and Wednesday.

As to the forecast itself: "Rain will overspread the area between 2 and 5 a.m., then transition to a mix of sleet and wet snow from west to east between 5 and 8 a.m".

The Okanagan Connector and the Trans-Canada Highway from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass also have warnings in effect. In addition, winds gusting as high as 35 miles per hour could cause some blowing and drifting snow.

In the United Kingdom five weather warnings are in place as heavy rain and snow blight swathes of the country on Easter Monday.

While temperatures will fall slightly, I believe all of Cape May, Atlantic County south of route 40 as well as most of Cumberland will remain all rain throughout the morning. But temperatures aren't exceptionally low.

Orelli said they got off to a slow start because they were not expecting this much snow. "Accumulations of 2-4" for most, up to 6" in the higher elevations, lesser farther south. Cool high pressure over eastern Canada will keep the chilly air flowing into the Northeast throughout next weekend, while a low pressure may try to develop off the Mid-Atlantic coast.

Most of the snow will accumulate on grassy and elevated surfaces. Cloudy, with a high near 53. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent.

Tuesday night's low in the Omaha area will plummet into the midteens, forecasters said.

Wednesday is expected to be mix of sunshine and showers and temperatures reaching 10 C before turning very cold that night with temperatures dropping to -3 C. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

Thursday in the Omaha area is expected to be partly sunny with a high around 50.
