After 1" or less of snow with some freezing drizzle last night.  Some clearing is underway now.

Wave of steady snow will come in with an Alberta Clipper tomorrow morning.  Much of it will fall 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

Some scattered snow showers & flurries will follow.  Temperatures will run near 28 at the start of the snow, then reach 32 by 1 p.m. before falling to near 28 later in the day.

Watch for slick areas on roads.

1" or less of accumulation is likely.  A few isolated 1-2" amounts cannot be ruled out.

Fast movement of the system will result in lower totals than what could occur with it.  If it slows down, then totals could be a bit higher.  That does not look to be the case right now.

Arctic air should follow with highs in the 20s Friday with sunshine.  We would easily drop into the single digits Friday night, if not for some increasing clouds & a breeze.  I went for 10-15.

Saturday-Sunday system still looks to stay south of here & with each run showing this, the potential of a northward shift decreases.  Much of this lack of northward swing (as what often occurs with these systems) it that the Bermuda high is too far off the East Coast.  Also, the Arctic high is too far south in nothern Indiana, Michigan & Ohio.  This is tending to keep the system south.

We will still monitor.  I kept 30% snow shower coverage on Saturday PM & 20% Sunday AM to account for any slight wobble to the north or northwest.


Temperatures will moderate to the 30s Sunday-Tuesday.

38-43 is likely by Wednesday with PM cold rain. 

Off & on rain & drizzle is likely Wednesday night with temperatures steady at 39-44.

Thinking that rain may end as snow Thursday as temperatures fall to near 32 late in the day after a morning high near 42.

Odds of mix & snow are high in a couple of rounds December 17-22.
