Wednesday Evening March 6 2019
Snow is in the forecast again. It is nice that multiple models agree in this occurring. This Friday we will have another event bring snow to much of the region. There has been legitimate concern considering this will arrive after a few days of our late season deep freeze. But we must consider that this snow will mostly fall during the day, and it is March. The higher solar energy will usually win out and keep most roads wet. We just saw this play out last Sunday. If this was earlier in winter, it would be a noteworthy event. But it’s almost spring.
There is also the factor that the freezing line will be north of the cities, so this should not be a concern for metro areas. The places that did get snow to stick last Sunday are more likely to get snow to stick Friday… But most will be on the grass or snow already on the ground. There is a small chance it may at the start, and then again in the evening. But after 10 AM. the sun angle through the clouds tends to be enough to warm the pavement.
Here is a look at the snow timeline form the NAM 3 Km. This was the best performing with last weekend’s storm. Also see the comparison to other models for the evening.

How Much Snow?
This is the model prediction for how much will fall. But this is NOT what will be on the ground. Definitely NOT on the roads.
The roads may start to get covered in the cold zone (below freezing) after the sun gets lower in the sky… Similar to last Sunday, this should be after 5 PM… Again… in similar areas to where it stuck last weekend.
