Strong Winds Lastnight………Thursday-Friday Looking More and More Like a Good Chunk Snow Than Mix

January 20th, 2013 at 10:03 am by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Thursday-Friday system looks more and more like a good chunk of it being snow and accumulating snowfall at that.   I wouldn’t be surprised to see some mix in our south & southeast, but right now it appears a substantial snowfall could be in the offing.

Soundings support largely snow with temperatures in the 20s as storm continues to take more of a southerly track.

I would shoot for a 4-6″ snowfall, right now (with mix in southern/southeastern counties), but is subject to change.  We will continue to monitor & see where the heaviest snowfall sets up.

Clipper tonight will bring some snow shower and a coating in places nonetheless with the coldest day time high in two years on Tuesday (around 12).

    I’m using reverse psychology so I can jinx myself! No way it’s going to snow! :D

    What do you think about snowfall for Newton County? For once I wouldn’t mind a weather surprise!

  4. Tyler says:

    Lets just not talk about it and maybe we will get lucky lol

    I’m using autumns philosophy…believe it when I see it!

    Seems somewhat promising. The actual system itself won’t be fully sampled until Wednesday. So I would say by Wednesday we will know for sure. I’m just concerned with lack of snowpack to the north that the cold might not hold up around here.
