Here it is 1:00 in the morning, I’m not working until Sunday, but I’m sitting in the family room with my laptop watching animated forecast maps and studying charts. I am so nerdy. This is what I was meant to do.
The Saturday storm is a fast moving clipper. No one needs to go nuts. Most roads should be good-to-go by Saturday night.
I’m currently looking closely at three models: NAM, GFS and HRRR. They’re all similar in their solution. All snow.
Exact accumulations forecasts are never spot on. Mostly we’ll see 2-4″ statewide (and by 2-4″ I mean 1-5″). In other words enough you won’t want to drive in it, but not enough to leave a lasting impression.
The storm will pass south of us. The bulk of the snow should fall between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM on the shoreline and 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM inland.
It will be cold. Some inland spots might stay in the teens though most will be in the low twenties. On the shore it will be closer to 30°.
Since I’ve been doing the Premier Subaru ads I’ve been promising I’d get some snow driving video. Tomorrow’s the day.
