As of 11:30 a.m., trace to 1" of snow has been reported in the viewing area. I have 0.3" at our WLFI ob site.
Scattered snow showers are likely through afternoon to evening.
However, a period of them shutting down for a bit is possible early afternoon as a tongue of drier air wraps in.
Some heavier squalls are possible later in the day.
Near 1" snow to as much as 2" total are likely by later tonight.
Temperatures will run around 29-32 this afternoon & fall to 27-30 this evening. Lows of 24-27 are expected tonight.
Scattered flurries & snow showers are expected for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Local dustings/coatings are possible with highs 30-34.
Some of the snow showers & flurries may continue into Mondaynight-early Tuesday morning.
However, the main burst of heavier snow is shaping up south of our area.
Lows will run 27-30.
It does appear that a burst of snow showers & flurries is looking possible for Wednesday morning. At this point, it appears that some local dustings/coatings are possible.
By afternoon, skies just look partly cloudy with highs warming to 33-38 as northwest wind turns to the southwest.
Wednesday night-Thursday looks windy & milder with lows of 30-35 Wednesday night & highs 38-46 Thursday.
A cold front will pass Thursday, so I did include a few showers ending as a few snow showers. A few flurries & snow showers are possible Friday.
It looks colder Friday-Sunday with highs 29-35 & lows 17-22
Some snow is possible next Sunday.
The mornings of January 28 & 29 could be the coldest of the winter at -3 to 3.
Shot of warmth still looks likely in early February, followed by a shot of much colder air with ice & snow following that.
Late February shows a good shot of warmth, too. Precipitation will run above normal in February.
