Midday Thursday Snowstorm Update

Overall, my thinking has not changed much on how this storm will evolve since yesterday. A changeover from rain to mixed precipitation to a little snow will occur tonight, but snow accumulations by daybreak will be pretty minor (coating to perhaps an inch). NAM Model snow accumulation by 7:00am:

7asnow

Not much will happen tomorrow morning. Snow will pick back up around midday/early afternoon and the worst part of the storm will be from mid-afternoon to very early evening. Snow accumulations will be in the 3-6 inch range, with many area north of I-80 closer to 3″ and areas near Rt. 30 closer to 6″.

Latest NAM Model storm total accumulation map is fairly close to my ideas (probably somewhat too high on southern fringes):

Thanks as always for reading!
