From Storm Team 5…
We are entering round one of two snow systems headed our way now through Thursday evening.
Round one of snow puts in a Winter Weather Advisory from this evening until 9 a.m. Wednesday.
This part of the system will bring about 2-4 inches.
From around mid-morning morning Wednesday until noon, there will be a lull in this system.
Round two of snow puts us in a Winter Storm Warning from midday Wednesday morning until 6 p.m. Thursday evening. Travel will likely be difficult for the Wednesday AM/PM and Thursday AM commutes. Travel is not advised especially Wednesday night into Thursday AM.
Another 6-10″ of snow is expected with round 2, bringing event totals to 8-14″.
The highest confidence is in the 8-12″ range.
East to northeast wind gusts could reach 35-40 mph causing blowing snow and drifting snow.
Drifting could easily get to 18-24″.
The snow and wind will taper by Thursday afternoon.
