First Warning Forecast: Tracking Measurable Snow

Posted at 12:58 PM, Jan 02, 2018

Meteorologist Madeline Evans' First Warning Forecast

Tomorrow we start tracking the chance of snow. In the morning we will be partly cloudy but dry so it should not affect your early morning commute. By 3 pm we may start to see a few spots of rain and snow mix moving in. The heaviest of the snow starts as we head into overnight Wednesday. We could see snow totals from 4" up to 6" by the time it moves out. Highs will reach the upper 30s for Wednesday.

Thursday morning there will still be a 60% chance of snow but will begin to move out by the afternoon. Wind speeds will also start to pick up from the north 20-25 mph gusting as high as 35 mph. Sunshine will gradually begin to sneak back in and we will see highs in the low to mid 30s. Overnight will be blustery with lows in the teens and still staying windy.
