Today's high in 40s; Thursday's high in 60s; snow possible Friday

Cold weather will move into the Midwest and Northeast following the storm

"A strong flow of moisture will move in off the Pacific to bring rain, snow and wind to much of northern and central Nevada", stated a hazardous weather outlook. There could be some records broken around the area for coldest high temperatures.

While many areas in the Northeast will be bracing for snow later this week, Minnesota will enter the weekend with frigid temperatures.

Though the snow may be able to cling to the ground for a few days, particularly in grassy places, it won't be long before it's all gone. "I don't see any of the cold air getting here before the precipitation ends".

Raleigh recorded 1.7 inches of snow on April 1, 1887 and another 3.5 inches on April 4, 1899. And threats of snow - yes, more April snow - in parts of New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania on Friday and Saturday.

Rain begins Tuesday morning, falling steady and heavy throughout the day.

"It's going to be nasty and the roads are going to be snow covered, slushy and very slippery", he said.

The next disturbance approaches Friday morning and will spread a burst of snow over the region during the Friday morning commute.

The chilly weather is staying put, which means precipitation on Tuesday will include both rain and snow.

There's the possibility for even more snow on Monday into Tuesday, but it's still too early to tell exactly what that storm may look like. The next largest single-day snowfall event produced 7.2cm on the 24th.

You might be wondering when this pattern is likely to shift.

Bitterly cold air, at least for April standards, will move into the Midwest Tuesday into Wednesday and reach the East Coast by Wednesday night. The historical high temperature average is 38.3 degrees, but last month it struggled to get that warm and ended with a 36.3 average.
