Light Snow Today, Not So Light Snow Looking More Likely Sunday

Hello everyone!

Today will feature increasing clouds in the morning followed by some light snow in the afternoon. Expect minimal accumulations in the coating-2″ range with the highest amounts along the coast. Snow will be steadiest in the afternoon and evening hours so the PM commute is when some slick spots are likely to be found. Snow wraps up later tonight before the sun makes an appearance tomorrow. Highs today will be in the 10’s to low 20’s.

Tomorrow will feature clearing out along with some NW wind gusts and falling temps. Highs will be in the 10’s for most with some single digits possible in the mountains. Wind chills will drop below that however making it feel a lot colder.

Saturday will start out extremely cold with lows below 0 for all and wind chills well below that. Wind chill advisories have been issued for the mountains so be sure to bundle up should you venture out Saturday morning. By later in the day Saturday, clouds will be on the increase and some snow could start to break out in advance of our not-so-light snow event.

There is a lot of uncertainty with our next storm however things are coming more into focus. Some sort of storm looks very likely and a significant storm is certainly possible. While it is too early for exact amounts, there is a very high likelihood of 6″+ with 12″+ not unreasonable. Both the GFS and the Euro give big storms with the Euro probably a tad overdone. I’ll have more details on this threat as it gets closer but I wanted to put it out there as our next major threat.

Yet another storm is looking more and more likely for the middle of next week which has the capability to bring even more snow.
