Snow, snow, snow. I am really astonished at this pattern going on right now. According to meteorologist Joe Bastardi, we haven’t ever seen a weather pattern during a La Nina like this. A fairly minor snowstorm will pass through the area tonight. The storm is moving through earlier than expected, meaning that it will move out earlier than expected.
My snow prediction of 3-6 inches for the area will stay as it is. Right now the storm is just starting to move into the area. Heavy snow banding is occurring in the heart of the precipitation, which will pass over the area in the middle of the night. This storm is quick moving, so it will be out of the area by 9 or 10 AM. Most schools will be delayed. But a handful of schools could close if a heavy snow band passes over or the snow lasts longer than expected.
Current radar as of 8:00 PM showing banding to our west (not live):
Sunny skies will prevail tomorrow afternoon as we head into the coldest weather of the season. Sunday and Monday’s highs won’t get out of the mid-20s. Then, next Tuesday into Wednesday we are looking at an aggressive system that has the possibility of riding the coast and giving us a nice amount of snow. I will talk more about that storm after this one.
