Regardless of which way your celebrity rodent or mollusk may have leaned in regards to the alleged end of Winter, it won’t be tomorrow. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 1 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday. As ominous as that may sound, the framework for warning status assumes snow accumulations of 6” of snow within 12 hours or 8” within 24”. The current crystal ball shows the bulk of heavy snow falling around the morning commute and tapering off towards afternoon.
Within the 14-hour window, wind speeds look to remain in the single digits while temperatures hold steady in the low 30’s. Reading ahead, the weekend promises temperatures that struggle to get out of the teens as winds pick up making the pending warning window the pick of the three day stretch. Unless the actual conditions go off script, I will plan on a follow up at the end of business Friday.
