As of 5:50am all residential snow plow routes have been completed. Anyone who’s home was not completed last night has already been contacted. While on route, I received the latest update from Weather Guidance and have been comparing their outlook with local forecasters so we might be able to offer a quality outlook at this time. The timing of the incoming snow has been adjusted a bit later than originally thought. Also, there has been the possible addition of freezing rain and sleet this afternoon prior to the snow machine cranking back up. We are expecting another 2-3” of snow however, it may not begin to accumulate until the dinner hour. We will continue to monitor the progress of this system and provide operational updates throughout the day. Please see below for the latest from our friends at Weather Guidance and thank you for your continued confidence in Rudey Landscape!
WeatherGuidance continues a Snow Advisory for Rudey Landscape
04:28 AM Today until 03:00 AM Tomorrow
Flurries and occasional periods of very light snow are possible this morning
A few brief periods of light freezing drizzle or sleet are also possible this morning
Periods of light snow will likely redevelop this afternoon and increase late this afternoon/evening into early tonight
Additional snow accumulation of 1-3 inches is likely across the area mainly from 6pm today through 2-3am on Sunday
West to Northwest wind will increase to 15-25 mph with gusts to 30 mph this evening into early Sunday, which may produce light blowing snow at times
Probability of the specified snowfall amount (total) at a given location:
Probability of 1.0-1.5 inches of snow: 90%
Probability of 1.5-2.0 inches of snow: 70%
Probability of 2.0-3.0 inches of snow: 50%
Probability of 3.0-5.0 inches of snow: 30%
Probability of 5.0-7.0 inches of snow: 10%
Probability of 7.0+ inches of snow: 0%
Flurries and occasional periods of very light snow are possible across the area from now through 12 Noon, but snow accumulation does not appear likely during that time period due to the expected light intensity and occasional frequency of the precipitation. A few brief periods of light freezing drizzle or sleet are also possible in spots during the morning hours as well.
Periods of light snow are likely to re-develop during the afternoon hours today and then increase mainly after 4-5pm and into the evening and early nighttime hours tonight. Additional snow accumulation of 1-3 inches appears likely for most of the area mainly from near 6pm today through 2-3am Sunday. The precipitation will diminish rapidly after that time, with no substantial additional accumulation expected after 3am on Sunday.
As far as the additional snow accumulation is concerned, the lower end of the forecast snowfall range is likely in West-Southwest parts of the local area, with the higher end of the range in the East-Northeast parts of the area. Locally higher amounts are then possible further East and Northeast of the area as well.
West to Northwest winds will increase to 15-25 mph with gusts to 30 mph mainly after 6pm today and continue through pre-dawn and early morning on Sunday. This may result in at least some light blowing of snow during that time period, especially in more open areas with direct exposure to a West-Northwest wind. The wind will start to decrease by mid-morning on Sunday.
We will continue monitoring the situation and issue updates as conditions warrant.
