Back Edge of Rainfall Approaching…..Some Sort of Snow System Brewing Next Week, But Timing & Track In QuestionFebruary 7th, 2013 at 10:10 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
The back edge of the rainfall is now in our western counties & working eastward. Rainfall totals still look to run 0.10-0.25″.
Behind this, there may be some patchy drizzle that goes over to some patchy freezing drizzle & few flurries. It does not look like a huge deal, but just be aware of a few slick spots in the morning, to be on the safe side.
Temperatures are cooling off into the 30s over parts of the area now after highs as high as 58 degrees today.
Model runs today have tended to shift snow south of here for around Valentine’s Day, but too early to pin down exact track. Thinking we need to watch this very closely. Confident enough to put snow in the forecast for Wednesday evening-night to Thursday morning for now.
Amounts are in question, as is the track. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Just have in the back of your minds that something is brewing near Valentine’s Day. Whether the timing is on that day, bit before, a day later or whether it is a 1-2″, a 4-6″, a 6-8″ snow remains blurry right now. I have enough confidence to make mention of it though for next week.
