Grandma's Marathon weekend is upon us, and both runners and spectators from around the world are prepared to descend on the Twin Ports for one of the area's biggest annual events. What can runners and fans expect the weather to do for race weekend? Here's the latest forecast.
The 2013-2014 winter season got off to a strong start, kicking off with a storm that dropped a few feet of snow on the region. From there, continued snow and brutal cold made this season one of the worst in years.
How about one more big snow event for good measure? Whether or not you like it, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning effective from 7:00 am Wednesday through 10:00 am Thursday.
The 2013-2014 winter season has been creeping further up the list of the top 15 snowiest winter seasons on record. With a significant snowstorm wrapping up the first week of April, this winter jumps up a few rungs on the ladder of winter records.
The winter storm warning for our area remains in effect until 7 pm Friday night. With upwards of 7 inches having fallen in areas from the Twin Ports and south, snow-covered roads, blowing and drifting snow, and ongoing new snow are making for a messy Friday.
Luckily the threat of a quarter of an inch of ice didn't develop and ice remained somewhat limited on roadways in the Twin Ports, but windy and snowy conditions have developed overnight and will hang around through the day today, leading the National Weather Service to extend their winter weather advisory until 4 pm today (Tuesday, April 1).
Even for winter enthusiasts, this has felt like a worse winter than most. Extreme cold, marked with plenty of snowstorms has made many wish for warmer days and hope for snowbanks to start to shrink. Those snowstorms have pushed us into the record books for this season, hitting a major milestone Thursday.
