Wow! A beautiful, sunny, warm high of 57°F on Monday made for a lot of disappearing snow. Temperatures will not be quite as warm on Tuesday, but still well above freezing to finish the job of melting the snow (except where it may stay in piles).
But true to the fickle month of March, winter stages a successful comeback on Wednesday. The timing will have the precipitation likely beginning as rain showers on Tuesday night before changing to snow very early Wednesday. Once the snow begins, it will likely accumulate in the 2-6" range in many northern counties, with lesser amounts south of Canton.
Computer models differ... and quite frankly, beyond saying "enough to shovel and plow," at this stage is pure speculation. If the changeover is too slow and the track farther north, we'll see an sloppy inch or two. If the changeover is quick and the track farther south, we'll see 6" or more. Look for some better snowfall numbers by tomorrow afternoon or evening. Even then, the atmosphere has the last say.
Earlier Monday, I received a rather interesting photo via my Facebook Fan Page of Cedar Point off in the distance and taken from the icy blocks near Marblehead. I thought it was worthy of sharing here because it is so unusual.
