Forecast Map (Precip Plot) For Monday, December 31, 2018 (4 AM)

It seems like we just got rid of the rain and now more rain is coming back. A low pressures system will bring rain to the area beginning early Monday morning. The Map above is indicating areas of rain and snow at 4 AM on Monday.

Here is a look a what the NAM model is showing. That area of low pressure will move north. This will bring the moisture from the south and bring rain into the area. Some rain could be steady to heavy at times. The low-pressure probably move right over the area before making sort of a right turn towards Pennsylvania.

Most of the area could see an inch of rain added to their yearly totals. Some areas may see more or less.

Warm Air Surges Back Into The Area – Monday, December 31, 2018

Probability of Snow As of Saturday, December 29, 2018

After the rain moves out of the area, we could see some snow! The best chance of this happening would be on Wednesday. Now it doesn’t look to be much snow, that’s one reason why I put our snow chance at probably.
