How’s the weekend weather looking?
Snowy nights; drier days…
Periods of snow, especially after 10:00pm. There isn’t a lot of moisture to work with, but cold temperatures in the teens means we’ll fluff up a powdery type snow that could certainly come out to 1 or 2 inches of snow by dawn Saturday.
It’ll be mainly cloudy, but aside from periods of flurries and a few snow showers for some, the day largely will be dry without snow of the accumulating variety. Chilly with highs in the upper teens.
Accumulating snow should return mainly later than 10:00pm. Looking at various computer models and doing some calculations on water-to-snow ratios for a cold, mid-teens air mass, to me, 3 to 6 inches of powdery snowfall here seems like the ticket at the moment.
Saturday night’s snow may extend all the way to 9:00am or so Sunday (that scenario is already included in my 3-6” forecast for this event). Sunday should eventually clear out nicely to some sun once the snow ends. Highs in the 20s.
