We are ‘dry slotted’ right now meaning snow totals likely will be small.

UPDATE:  Surface low continues to pull in dry air at the surface and means our snow chances are way down for the remainder of the day.  Snow flakes with a couple of isolated snow showers will be possible but most places will only see a light dusting to perhaps two tenths of an inch of snow.  Slick spots will still be possible where snow showers develop.

Snow BACK in the forecast for today with about a half inch of snow on average expected across the state.  At this point it doesn’t appear that any one place is more likely to see higher totals than another part of the state so will just go a half inch for everyone.

For today a warm front will lift in from the south.  The instability and lift along the front will be enough for us to see some snow showers breaking out.  As the front continues to move to

Advisories to the east due to icing concerns

the north we may have a brief period of very light rain as we turn warmer along front.  This won’t last very long as a cold front will push through area later on tonight at about 7pm.  Behind front any moisture left over will turn into snow once again.  The concern at this point is even 2 hundredths of an inch of freezing rain or sleet could cause isolated slick spots on area roads.  The chance for us seeing significant icing is small, but even small doses can cause big problems.

Snow could continue in isolated spots overnight tonight as front and upper low moves past area.  The rest of the week is looking cold with a series of fronts sweeping through the area.  Another front slides through on Tuesday bringing with it another chance for snow.  Another half inch of snow is possible with that line.  Wednesday and Thursday mornings will likely be the coldest mornings of the week with temperatures falling to single digits for morning lows.
