A fast-moving low pressure center is racing by south of the area today, bringing us a period of snow and ensuring that the first week of April gets off to a very wintry start.
Temperatures are falling through the 30s this morning and snow will increase in intensity through the morning hours…peaking during late morning and midday and then gradually tapering off during the afternoon hours.
As temperatures cool with the onset of the snow and the intensity of the precipitation increases, snow will begin to accumulate around the area this morning…happening initially only on grassy surfaces.
However, with several hours of steady, moderate to heavy snow expected to engulf the region during mid to late morning period, snow will likely stick to some area roadways (especially quieter backroads) leading to some slick, slushy spots.
Total snowfall around the Cape should range from 1 to 3 inches.
