The forecast remains on track. There has been a lot of sleet mixing in, but there’s so much moisture left to go that I still think we’re on track to see 3-6 inches of snow areawide, with localized higher amounts possible.
The Storm Prediction Center just highlighted our area in a specialized discussion. That’s the blue outline you see on the radar image below. They stated that snowfall rates of up to 2″ per hour were possible. They also noted numerous reports of sleet mixing in with the snow. Never the less, they also feel that significant snow accumulation is certainly likely tonight across our area.
Pictured below is WeatherTAP winter mosaic radar, showing heavy snow all across the region. It’s going to be a snowy night!
One thing both the NWS and the Storm Prediction have stated is that when this snow tapers off later tonight, we could be left with snow flurries and freezing drizzle that will last into the morning. Please be careful with this because the freezing drizzle will form an invisible layer of ice (a glaze) on top of the snow. Be careful!
You all take care and enjoy the snow! If you need more info please see previous posts I mentioned today.
