The details are not so certain yet. There are 2 basic ideas for this system:
- Storm tracks right over head. This gives heavy snow, then heavy sleet, maybe some rain before ending as snow.
- Storm tracks to our SE. This gives heavy snow.
I personally favor something close to #1. If I had my wish, I would go for #2. But when forecasting I need to look at what seems most likely, not what I wish. And some variation of #1 is what I lean toward right now.
Now, before we get there, we do have a cold front moving through Wed night, reinforcing our cold air, and giving us a cold Thursday. Then a system moves in for Thu night bringing light snow and light accumulations by Fri morning. Not a big storm; yet not one to overlook either. And it may play a role in our weekend storm if it is a little stronger causing the pattern to flatten a little, making us colder. Time will tell.
That’s all for now. Until next time (Wed probably). Enjoy.
