YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIK MAITLAND
The weather gets MUCH more interesting as we close out the week. A FIRST ALERT DAY will likely be issued for Friday night/Saturday. Thursday will bring
a cloud/sun mix and the chance for some light rain south and east of the Metro QC as we go through the day. Friday we'll see more clouds and as we
head into the evening hours rain will have already begun, with a changeover to wet, heavy snow for areas around and north and east of the Metro QC.
Some locally heavier snow is possible in spots, and although it's a bit early
to zero in on amounts it seems likely that there will have to be some plowing and shoveling done to clean it up. The snow will taper off Saturday afternoon
and Sunday partial sun will return and the melting will begin. Next week also looks active with rain likely early in the week.
