Yesterday’s forecasted storm took some time out of its schedule to slow down and remind weather forecasters who’s boss. No matter, snow is still on its way with snowfall rates picking up at about 3am this morning. Just much later then forecasted yesterday. The sun will rise this morning with a couple inches of new snow on the ground while the heavier precipitation rates will be during the first half of Saturday, mostly before 11am. Some models are still excited for today’s total snowfall with .8” SWE by 5pm. However the Low Pressure trough is currently digging further south than anticipated which is leading to cutting those total snowfall numbers slightly. A weak ridge will be moving into our area this evening leading to a drying trend for Sunday. Winds will be light through today before picking up from the north tonight.
