TRACKING: Blowing snow this evening

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

A WINTER STORM WARNING remains in effect this evening for blowing snow.

Several inches of snow fell last night and this morning and now the strong northwest winds are blowing it around.Wind gusts to 40 mph are possible this evening. Blowing snow will reduce visibility and push the snow across the road keeping the roads slick. Snow drifts will be a concern as well in some locations. The wind gradually diminishes around midnight.

Wednesday is mostly sunny and warmer as temperatures reach the low to mid 20s. Also the wind is much lighter…about 5-15 mph from the south/southeast. Clouds move back into the area Wednesday night and it remains cloudy Thursday. A cold front is forecast to push through the area with a few flurries. Not much moisture for the is front. The wind picks up during the afternoon Thursday. 

The wind picks up Thursday afternoon, behind the front. We will watch this closely and see if it is strong enough to cause blowing snow.  It does get colder Friday into the weekend with high temperatures mainly in the teens and lows near zero. Friday and Saturday are dry but a few light snow showers are possible Sunday. The best chance for any of the snow would be in our southern counties.
