Storms Still On Track

The good news is there really isn't much new news. We're not seeing too much variance in the model runs from the last few days. This high level of model agreement is unusual and is often indicative of a sure-bet snow storm.

Sadly, though, our snow totals are down for our Friday morning event. Grrr. The cold air will limit the moisture in a big way so we may get 3 inches at most for Friday morning. That's still enough for many delays for Friday--especially because the timing is so good--but we're not as excited as we were, say, yesterday.

Not going to lie--we do not like this map (for Friday morning). But thanks anyway, NWS Albany.
The big storm this weekend should be a big storm. We may see light snow as early as noon on Saturday, and it will be light until Saturday evening. The first part of the storm will bring heavy snow Saturday night, then as the low pressure systems combine and re-form off the coast, we will see more heavy snow with sleet and even freezing rain mixing in during the day on Sunday. Snow totals will be high with this storm even with the sleet and freezing rain. If the storm tracks more to our east, which is a possibility, we'll see all snow.

We think this map is just a tad ambitious, but it's only one weather outlet's perspective.

Many more details to follow tomorrow about Friday morning and the weekend's storm track and timing.
