Our weather is about to change dramatically once again across the region. A potent storm system is swinging in from the north for your Wednesday morning that is bringing lots of cold air and the possibility of snow. There are lots of variables, as you can probably guess, that will factor in when talking about snow amounts.The actual cold front will move into the area between 4-7 a.m. which will bring our temperatures down quickly and allow the temperatures to continue to fall for the afternoon and evening. The models vary on how much moisture is actually available in this system, but the real question is when will the temperatures will actually be cold enough to support snow the whole time we are getting precipitation. Several of the computer models are giving us virtually no accumulation. This might be a little low, although very possible considering we may see a little bit of rain before the temperatures are cold enough to support snow.This particular storm system will bring us the possibility of 1 to 3 inches of snow, but considering the timing and ground temperature we are more likely to see on the order of 1/2 to 1 inch of snow accumulate and should be just about through the region by the time you head home tomorrow. Our best chance of seeing accumulating snow will fall between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
