Well, hello there! Over the last 24 hours, the forecast has solidified and trended in a slightly snowier direction.
It’s starting to look a bit like a snow day ❄️
It won’t be a particularly memorable event in the grand scheme of things, but timing is everything in life. And the timing of this storm will cover both the morning and afternoon commute on Tuesday…
It has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Winter Weather Advisory for 2-3 inches of snow and a light glaze of ice.
What am I thinking? Well, I’m pleased to report that my forecast hasn’t changed much since yesterday!
What? Snow of a light to occasionally moderate intensity.
When? Starting between 2:00 - 5:00 am Tuesday from south-to-north. Ending between 2:00 - 5:00 pm from west-to-east.
How much? 2-4 inches across most of the region.
Impacts? Although snow accumulation from this storm doesn’t look too heavy, it will impact both the morning and afternoon commute. Temperatures in the 20s means that snow will stick to all surfaces. Roads will likely become snow-covered by around daybreak Tuesday. I can foresee a reality where school districts “test the waters” with a delay on Tuesday initially, followed by a closure (or not), depending on how bad the roads are. However, given the issuance of a Winter Weather Advisory, confidence levels may be high enough to go with a closing outright. The rather light intensity of the snow means that road crews should generally be able to stay on top of things, but untreated surfaces will be slippery.

After this storm, snow showers are possible later on Thursday, followed by the potential for a more organized system on Friday. Stay tuned!
