PeriShip Weekly Weather Outlook
PeriShip strives to inform our customers about weather conditions as they may have the capability to affect the transit of shipments. Below is a general weather outlook for the week of Sunday, March 1st, 2015 through Saturday, March 7th, 2015.
National Weather Outlook:
The month of March is coming in like a lion; there will be a large storm system that will expand as far as Texas to Massachusetts bringing snow, ice, and rain. There is also a separate storm system in the West expanding over southern California to parts of Wyoming also bringing a mixture of snow, ice, and rain.
As the week continues, both of these storm systems will grow larger, bringing additional rain and snow. Both of these systems will touch from the top of the border to the bottom border of the United States, from Montana and Minnesota to Arizona and Texas.
By Wednesday and Thursday these storm systems will drastically decrease in size. One storm system will move east touching much of the east coast, while the storm in the west will condense and mainly cover Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. This storm system will bring more snow than rain and ice.
