A taste of winter weather moves through

Good Sunday, everyone. Our winter weather maker is pushing across the state, but thunderstorms in the deep south are zapping a lot of the moisture from it. That means a pretty light event in our part of the world.

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for parts of the region through tonight. Here’s a look:

My latest thoughts really haven’t changed much:

  • The best chance for winter weather comes this afternoon and early evening.
  • Light accumulations of snow show up, with streaks of overachieving snow and streaks of “that’s it?”. The majority of accumulations will be on grassy and elevated surfaces.
  • Thunderstorms in the deep south will play a big role in how much precipitation falls. The more thunderstorms that develop there, the less precipitation here and vice versa.
  • If we are to get some slick roads out of this, the best chance comes after sundown as temps crash. We should be in the teens overnight with the potential for a few snow showers and flurries lingering.

Lows by Monday morning are deep into the teens:

Single digit wind chills show up across the west and central parts of the state.

Frigid temps will be noted for the week ahead, with another system possibly bringing winter weather back into the region by the end of the week. That would be followed by another system and cold shot next weekend…
