Spring snow a possibility for the weekend

"There will definitely be some snow as well, just not as much as the higher elevations", she said, "but this will all begin to taper off come Sunday".

Acadiana may see scattered showers and thunderstorms (40% or higher) developing Wednesday with highest rain chances and best prospects for a soaking arriving Thursday, near 70-80%.

Otherwise, it will be a mostly cloudy night with overnight lows falling back into the 40s and low 50s. Clouds start to increase fast near midday, leaving mostly cloudy skies for the afternoon.

More rain is possible for Tuesday, as well, but then drier conditions are expected to move in and stick around to close out the work week.

By Thursday afternoon, daytime highs will warm to 10 or more degrees above normal some areas. While we still have a continuation of some unseasonably cool temperatures to deal with through the weekend, milder prospects await next week. This could also produce a few additional showers spreading this time from east to west.

Friday brings a slight chance for rain in the afternoon, with "spotty rain showers developing after 4 p.m.", said Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist.

While Friday is expected to reach 50 degrees and the sun will be shining, the weekend forecast is more snow leopard than lion. Highs in the mid-30s. Highs will range from the mid 40s to low 50s early next week, but a disturbance will bring rain showers Monday into Tuesday. "It hasn't been real warm, but it's been warm enough that the soil temperatures are above freezing, so some of it will melt when it hits the ground". The snow will be wet and heavy and will obstruct visibility at times especially while on the roads. A late week cold front may cool things off a bit for Easter weekend, which right now looks to feature clouds and sunshine with perhaps a passing rain shower on Easter Sunday itself.
