It’ll Hit 60 This Week, But It Also Might Snow a Bit

Thunderstorms one night, snow the next.

It’s definitely still winter. Snow – even if just a little bit – is still in our 7-day forecast. But you can tell Spring is near with the presence of another word: thunderstorm.

As we approach 60° today and temps drop to near freezing tomorrow night, we’re obviously getting some unstable weather. And unstable weather, especially in the Spring and summer often means the presence of thunderstorms.

We could see a t-storm (well, night owls might) overnight into Wednesday morning. But temps will drop off considerably tomorrow and that’s when we’re likely to see some snow showers.
