Alerts: Winter Storm Warning In Effect from 1 AM Tonight Through 3 PM Friday. Hazardous travel expected….
Tonight: Rain and snow showers developing between 11 PM- 2 AM. Rain will changeover to periods of snow roughly between 1-4 AM. Snowfall amounts of 1-2 inches possible. 70 % chance of precip. Low temperature around 32F. Winds from the northwest at 15-25 mph.
Friday, February 5th: Mostly cloudy with periods of moderate to heavy snow AM. Periods of light snow PM. Snowfall amounts of 3-5 inches possible. High temperature around 33F. 70 % chance of snow. Winds from the northwest at 10-20 mph.
Friday Night: Mostly cloudy with a chance of snow, mainly before 6 PM. Little to no snow expected. Becoming mostly clear late evening into the overnight. Low temperature around 19F. Winds from the west-northwest at 10-20 mph.
Impacts: With rain changing over to snow, this will make for some slippery roadways during the early morning and morning commute. This may also bring about some school cancellations tomorrow. The snow may also effect parts of the evening commute as the snow should be lightening before or by that time.
Note: With the storm track pushed further inland, this has lead to an increase in moisture. With the cold air moving in late during the overnight, this will lead to some bands of moderate to heavy snow across the area through tomorrow mid day-afternoon. There is still some uncertainty as to how soon the cold air will move in and where the heavy snow band sets up pending the storm track.
