I’ve met my match. Rachel Frank is just as tightly wound as I am over the snow coming Saturday. Maybe she’s more tightly wound! We have run the numbers and spun the maps a bunch of times this afternoon and evening. The models are nothing if not inconsistent over the amount of precipitation we’ll get.
What does look likely is an all day snow for Saturday. You’ll wake up with the ground already covered. It won’t be finished until after the Sun goes down… which of course you won’t see because of the snow!
If this forecast holds true most people will have second thoughts about venturing out Saturday. It’s not that the state will be on lockdown. Roads will be pasable though slippery. I think most of us have just learned we can wait these storms out! It’s just not worth the hassle.
Earlier computer runs had the largest snowfall potential in Eastern Connecticut. As the 00Z NAM arrives that looks less certain.
The best way to describe it is not a back breaker, but more than enough to notice.
Rachel is off tomorrow. I’ve got a dollar that says we still speak.
