Snowfall Totals From Last Event & Outlook to January 20……Later This Evening: Why Do We Seemingly Miss A Lot of Weather?January 3rd, 2013 at 4:07 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
I forgot to post this map of our last snowfall event with all of the totals. Thank you all for your reports? They are greatly appreciated! Promised I would get the map up, here it is.
There are 4 systems to track now-around January 20.
One is a clipper Saturday night-Sunday with scattered snow showers & very minor accumulation in places (dusting). 1-2″ may fall just northeast of here. We will watch to see if those 1″ to 2″ make it in here. After this clipper pushing a bit warmer air in for Saturday, it will turn a bit cooler Sunday. However, both days look to reach & exceed the freezing mark.
The next system will push 40s into the area with showers late Wednesday-Wednesday to Thursday morning. Behind that, seasonably cold air will move back in (highs near 32).
The third system may bring accumulating snowfall to the area around January 15. Right now, data suggests 2-6″ with 2″ in our northwestern counties & 6″ in our southeastern counties. Behind that, cold, cold air will move in with highs only near 20 for a few days as strong Arctic-type high moves in. Overnight lows may drop to 0, if not below.
Fourth system is a clipper that may bring minor snowfall to the area around January 18 or 19th with slight moderation in temperatures, but it will still be cold!
