snow totals and more snow coming!!!

by

overall a good forecast for most, totals were hindered by a dry slot in the south but most folks were able to get some decent bands of snow.

two main hazards overnight

1. roads are snow covered and very slick my car did some sliding even going about 10 mph with 4 wheel drive

2. very low wind chills as lows fall into the single digits with a breezy nw wind wind chills will fall below 0 make sure to bundle up. blowing snow will around as well.

the nam continues to show periodic snow showers friday afternoon through saturday night with ratios of 20-30:1 those.1 qpf dots could mean 2 or 3 inches of snow through this period.

these snow showers will be off and on and hit and miss but an overall 1-3 inches for areas east and north of Elizabethtown accums under an inch elsewhere.  single digit lows and teens for highs coupled with windy conditions will make for very low wind chills. I’ll fine tune things on the snow showers tomorrow. be careful if traveling throughout the weekend as slick spots will be common.

2. a clipper has come into the picture for monday night which might bring a chance for light snow the good news is highs get close to freezing but with lows still in the 20’s any light snow would accumulate to most surfaces with high ratios.

00z gfs

a big time warmup to average to expected for most of next week but another in a series of big storms this winter may be coming up by next weekend.
