We will be dealing with the 4th nor'easter / coastal storm across Delmarva in as many weeks to start the workweek this week. The clouds will start to spill across Delmarva this afternoon ahead of this storm with the rain beginning to pick up after midnight. It will rain on and off throughout Tuesday with some of this rain being heavy at times. We being to see the transition to snow happen in the evening of Tuesday and continue all night Tuesday into Wednesday. The northern part of Delmarva will see the majority of the snow with the snow starting earlier there. The southern half starts to see a mix of rain and snow with a full transition to snow by morning, but the difficult part about this forecast is knowing how much influence to ocean will have after the transition happens. Along with this influence, we have to take into account the sun angle....with it being now spring by Wednesday and if we see banding as this storm begins to depart. It leaves by late Wednesday and we will dry out by Thursday.We dry out for Thursday and Friday before the models indicate that another storm could impact the region with the possibility of rain and/or snow by the weekend. Again, we will take this one storm at a time...know that this storm is simmering on the burner, we will just give it a look every once in a while, the focus will the storm for Tuesday into Wednesday.
