Brief Overview

10:00PM Wednesday

Light snow should continue to develop tonight.
Expecting about an inch of powdery snow through the morning.

Snow will then lighten up some after about 8:00AM tomorrow through tomorrow afternoon as the best snowfall stays to our north.
Likely looking at 2 to 5 inches of snow through 8:00PM, depending on how strong the lull is tomorrow.

Strengthening coastal low will begin to impact us Thursday night with heavier snowfall developing after 8:00PM and lasting through about 8:00AM Friday. Snow showers possible throughout Friday morning. Looking for total accumulations in the 7 to 11 inch range by the end of Friday morning.

This snowfall will be very powdery, so
good for sledding , skiing, and snow angels…
not so good for snowmen, snowballs, snow angles, or driving.
