Tuesday January 30 2018

The brief bought of snow this morning is pretty much on schedule, perhaps an hour early. This will be ending quickly but the freezing temperatures will be trying to catch up and make for an icing problem on the western side of the cities as wet roads may freeze up. So the warmer ground that melted the snow will have to deal with temps dropping into the upper 20s to near 30ºF just as we get daylight. Many schools that delayed will need to reevaluate. This is a tough call since a dusting to 2 inches of snow is done. See the temperature plot timeline slider below.

Note: Today is the first day our accelerated daylight increases more than 2 minutes each day.

Snow Outlook

February will bring a colder pattern with more chances of snow for the first half of the month.

The Friday system will not be heavy, but another rain to snow and icing event…. The energy for a stronger storm seems to be reorganizing for possibly another try early next week.
