4PM Quick Update

Forecast is on track. You can find my map from this mornings post. Right now I expect the front end thump of snow to account for several inches of accumulations in northern zones before changeover to ice. Expect changeover around 4-7am south to north in red zone. 

Travel will be very rough tomorrow, especially in yellow box. Do not take this lightly if you live further north.

Update coming after the Superbowl..enjoy the game!

  1. Willy, for my I-280 corridor, 18z NAM seems to imply 6 in snow. Interestingly, both US and Canada High Res models from 12Z both indicate low snow, around 3 inches (HRW-ARW and HRDRS); the standard resolution models were 6 to 8 inches snow plus addtl rain/sleet, consistent with your 1-280 corridor forecast. UKMET is somewhat higher res, seems to imply about same total precip as standard res models, but hints at lower snow portion because of above freezing temps overnight. Any thought on why higher res models are deviating somewhat? Jim G

    1. the high res models update hourly so you can see a lot of volatility with them. Where are you located and how much snow did you get?
