Tracking snow

Whoever keeps wishing for more snow needs to cut it out, for all that is good in the world please stop! I’m now tracking three separate chances for snow this week. Let’s break down the first round.

Sunday Afternoon
The snow will continue through the beginning part of the afternoon. With temperatures reaching the middle 30s the snow may have a tough time sticking to treated surfaces. A few pockets of drizzle or rain drops could be possible at times.. As we head into the late afternoon, the snow will taper off a little.

Sunday Evening
After a mid-afternoon break.. another round of snow is expected by mid evening with the passage of the cold front. As temperatures drop, the snow will not have any trouble sticking to the ground. Travel could be tough at times.

Sunday Night into Monday Morning
The snow will taper off into the overnight hours. Less than an additional inch is expected. The skies will also clear and temperatures will fall into the upper single digits.

Monday Night
If you look at radar you might notice the snow overhead tonight. Most of it won’t reach the ground though. It’s too dry. The air column will saturate out through the overnight hours and we will see snow begin to fall by morning.

Snow totals: A widespread 1-3 inches of snow is possible through Sunday night. There is a chance for some areas to see higher amounts. There is also the chance for rain that will deplete the snow accumulation.

School on Monday: Delays are possible but the heaviest snow will fall Sunday. This will give road crews plenty of time to treat the roads. Scattered snow showers Sunday evening could hinder that some. If I were a student, I would keep an eye on Tuesday and Wednesday.
