Sizing up the Saturday snow
Saturday afternoon and night look to be the prime period
* Temperature heading downward: Full Forecast *
Next Chance of Accumulating Snow: Saturday-Saturday night
Probability of Accumulating Snow: 40%
Most Likely Potential Impact:
Low pressure moving along and off the Eastern Seaboard on Saturday is expected to throw precipitation into our area. Though the details are still murky, this is our current thinking:
Precipitation may start as a rain/snow mix late Saturday morning and persist lightly through the afternoon. Precipitation could change to all snow Saturday evening before ending toward midnight. Any accumulation would most likely occur on grassy surfaces although if a period of moderate snow develops, especially after dark, some slick spots could develop on roadways.
Here is our current assessment of accumulation chances:
No snow: 40%
Dusting to coating (mainly on grass): 25%
Most likely scenario: Dusting to coating or so, mainly on grassy areas.
As we get closer to the event, our confidence will improve, so keep an eye on our site for updates!
