Clipper system will bring first batch of accumulating snow

Our first taste of chilly air is upon us, next could be the snow. We are expecting a quick round of 1”-3” of snowfall from Friday evening through early Saturday. The timing looks to be as early as 5pm-6pm, and last until the early morning hours. All the snow will be over with and shoved east by daybreak on Saturday. The visibilities could drop to under 2 miles in some spots during the heavy bursts. Driving could become somewhat hazardous if you’re commuting during that timeframe on Friday.

Light snow showers or flurries could still linger Saturday morning; however, the accumulating snow will be over with. The winds will turn very breezy once again on Saturday with daytime highs in the 20s, and wind chills in the single digits on Saturday morning. There could be a few more disturbances, or clipper systems, that could bring a few more inches of snow on Sunday night and also Tuesday night.

One thing is for sure, there are not any major warm ups scheduled for the area during the 10-day forecast. Expect highs to stay in the 20s and 30s, which will be below average, underneath this pesky trough.
