Super Bowl Sunday slop precedes spring-like stretch (again)

Super Bowl Sunday starts with a mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow and it all depends on your elevation.

Rain and a wintry mix west of the Parkway will continue on an off-and-on basis through the morning.

By the afternoon, any chance of accumulating snow will mostly be above the 2,000-2,500 foot level. While snow may mix in with the rain farther east, there’s hardly any chance that it sticks.

Our most recent snow/sleet accumulation map reflects that (see below). It will be very difficult for snow and/or sleet to overcome the warm, wet ground which will lead to minimal accumulations east of Interstate 77.

By the 4th quarter of Super Bowl LVII, most of the precipitation is east of the area.

The rest of the week features increasing temperatures with each day, bringing us back to a stretch of spring-like warmth. That will especially be the case beyond Valentine’s Day.

A strong storm system to our west will produce severe weather from the Southern Plains to the Tennessee River Valley Wednesday and Thursday before bringing rain back to us Thursday (and perhaps Friday).
