WeatherGuidance continues a Snow Advisory for Rudey Landscape
12:00 PM Tomorrow until 06:00 PM Saturday (12/17/16)
Snow is likely from Friday afternoon through early Saturday evening
Total snow accumulation of 3-5 inches is likely on average for most of the local area with this event
Higher snow amounts are possible just to the North of the local area and closer to the Wisconsin border
Probability of the specified snowfall amount (total) at a given location:
Probability of 1.0-1.5 inches of snow: 100%
Probability of 1.5-2.0 inches of snow: 90%
Probability of 2.0-3.0 inches of snow: 70%
Probability of 3.0-5.0 inches of snow: 60%
Probability of 5.0-7.0 inches of snow: 30%
Probability of 7.0+ inches of snow: 20%
We are continuing to monitor a developing weather situation for the period Friday afternoon through Saturday evening of this week. Measurable snow continues to appear likely across the local region during this time period.
Present trends continue to indicate that periods of snow will begin around 12 Noon or shortly afterward on Friday and increase into Friday night and Saturday before tapering off early on Saturday evening. At this time we continue to forecast total snow accumulation of 3-5 inches on average across most of the local area with this event. While accumulating snow is possible anytime during the aforementioned time period, the most likely time frame for the majority of the accumulation appears to be from near 6pm on Friday through the morning hours on Saturday, with generally decreasing accumulation likely from 12 Noon Saturday through early Saturday evening.
Snow amounts are likely to be even heavier just to the North of the local area - and especially as you move closer to the Wisconsin border. This is based on the present expected track of the system. If the system were to track further South than currently expected, then heavier snow amounts would be possible in at least portions of the local area. We will continue to monitor for this possibility and issue updates as the situation becomes more clear.
Winds are not expected to be a problem during most of the time period in which snow is falling and accumulating, but winds will increase from the West-Northwest after 6pm on Saturday and continue into Saturday night, which may result in some blowing of accumulated snow during that time period.
We will continue monitoring the situation and issue updates as conditions warrant.
