More snow on the way for Tri-States Region

More snowfall is expected to affect the Tri-States Tuesday night. A low pressure system will move through the Central plains tomorrow night into Wednesday and bring with it some snow. Forecast models are still disagreeing on how much snow we’ll see, but they relatively agree on where the Low Pressure system could be at by Tuesday night. Right now 1-3 inches looks to be possible from this system. The further south you go, the more snow you’ll see, the further north you go, the less you’ll see. This can all change like I said, one little change in any detail of this forecast and we could have a total different outcome. We could either see more snow, less snow, or the tracking of the snowfall could be completely different. That’s why it’s always important to check back for future forecasts.

After this system passes, the weather will actually start to warm up. The wind will start coming out of the South once this storm passes and it’ll raise temperatures to near 30° by the end of this week. This will be a welcomed change from the the extremely cold temperatures that we saw over the weekend. The images included here show where the forecast models think the system will set up and how much snow we could see. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to this event.  –Devin BiggsScreen Shot 2016-01-18 at 2.59.59 PMScreen Shot 2016-01-18 at 3.00.32 PM Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 3.00.02 PM Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 2.54.28 PMScreen Shot 2016-01-18 at 2.54.31 PM Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 2.54.25 PM
