Light Snow Still Possible Late Saturday
Accumulation chances low but not impossible
Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Saturday evening
A cold front passing by late Saturday (coupled with a wave in the atmosphere aloft) could give us a brief period of snow showers or flurries. Accumulations, if any, would be very light as the mountains will probably squeeze out much of this system's moisture before it arrives here. Here's how I see it:
Chance of no accumulation: 75%
Chance of a dusting to an inch: 20%
Chance of more than an inch: 5%
The most likely timing for any snowfall would be between 5 p.m. and midnight. A heavier burst of snow, if it were to materialize, would likely drop temperatures to around or just below freezing -- thus the slight chance of seeing some accumulation. We'll keep you posted with updates as needed.
The Snow Lover's Crystal Ball appears when the potential exists for accumulating snow beyond 24 to 36 hours.
