Snow Continues Tonight, Departs Tomorrow

Hello everyone!

Snow is currently falling across the region with light to moderate being the dominant intensity. Look for this to continue through the night along with high winds that will blow the snow into a low visibility, drift inducing frenzy. Amounts in your front yard will range from 0-24″ when drifts are included. The actual amount of snow that will fall from the sky is likely to be in the 4-8″ range along the coast and in the 2-4″ range inland though with drifts, amounts will be far different when you look outside tomorrow morning.

Here is the HRRR model with a general idea on the evolution of the snow through tomorrow morning. I suspect it may be a little quick to shut off the snow as the upper low to our west will be eager to continue pulling in moisture. I think mid to late morning is a more reasonable stop time with drying from SW to NE.

Snowfall amounts from last night still look good with 4-8″ for most, 2-4″ in the mountains.

Check out last night’s post and this morning’s post for more info. That information still applies as the storm is progressing as forecast.

Snow showers are possible throughout the week as waves of low pressure develop well offshore. Another chance for respectable snow arrives early in the weekend next weekend followed by a blast of truly Arctic air early next week.
