We know we're about halfway through March, but you might not want to put your coats and scarves away just yet. There are two new storms expected to close out winter through this weekend and into next week, according to The Weather Channel.
Meteorologists say we can expect to see two separate storm systems bringing snow and ice from the West into the Midwest and the East. The second of the two systems could possibly evolve into a nor'easter — a winter storm with a strong northeastern wind — which would make it the fourth of its kind this March.
The first snow system is expected to be relatively short-lived — bringing snow and ice to the West and Midwest from Thursday to Friday night of this week. But the second storm is predicted to last from Thursday of this week to midway into next week — possibly even until next Thursday. Only time will tell if the second storm really does turn into another nor'easter, but one thing's for sure: It's not going to skimp on snowfall.
Some parts of the western United States — especially near the mountains — are expected to see more than a foot of snow throughout the weekend. Some spots may even see a foot and a half. If you live in that area, it's a great idea to stay tuned to your local weather forecast and see how things are progressing. It's tough at this point to predict how much snow will fall in the Midwest and East, so if you live in those areas, you should probably keep checking in within the next couple days so that you're prepared for whatever comes your way.
It's hard to believe that spring officially starts next Tuesday, isn't it? We hope Mother Nature gets the memo soon!
