Forecast Overview
Last Updated: 12:45PM November 16th

12:45PM Sunday

A low pressure center will trek from the Gulf of Mexico, through the eastern US, and up into Canada tonight and tomorrow. This storm will spread precipitation across our area beginning after midnight tonight, and continuing though most of Monday.

Like this past Thursday's storm, temperatures for this system look to be around the boarder line for a rain/frozen precipitation event. The surface temperatures look to fall to around 30-32 degrees during the early morning hours on Monday, and this could again support some wet snowflakes, possibly accumulating on mainly grassy surfaces. The issue with this storm, however, is that the temperatures in the atmosphere support ice more than they support snow, and we could see a couple hours of freezing rain.

At the moment, any snow accumulations look to be under half an inch. Ice accumulations are more difficult to forecast, but appear to be less than a tenth of an inch— a light glaze on the surfaces that it sticks to. Because surface temperatures only look to bottom out in the 30 to 32 degree range, it is questionable how much of this will stick to roadways. For now, have gone with a 20% chance for delay, and will have an update by 10PM tonight.

Next Update by 10PM
