WeatherGuidance continues a Snow Advisory for Rudey Landscape
03:42 PM Today until 03:00 AM Tomorrow
Periods of light snow will likely redevelop and/or increase mainly after 6-7pm and continue into early tonight
Additional snow accumulation of 1-2 inches is possible across the area mainly from after 6-7pm today through 1-2am 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: 70%
Probability of 1.5-2.0 inches of snow: 50%
Probability of 2.0-3.0 inches of snow: 30%
Probability of 3.0+ inches of snow: 10%
Periods of light snow are likely to re-develop late this afternoon and then increase mainly after 6-7pm and into the evening and early nighttime hours tonight. Additional snow accumulation of 1-2 inches is possible for most of the area mainly from after 6-7pm today through 1-2am Sunday. The precipitation will diminish rapidly after that time, with no substantial additional accumulation expected after about 2am on Sunday.
As far as the additional snow accumulation is concerned, the lower end of the forecast snowfall range is more likely to occur in West-Southwest parts of the local area, with the higher end of the range more likely to occur 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.
