Snow chances through Saturday!

We'll have plenty of chances to see snowflakes through Saturday, but these systems won't add up to much.

We're under a general northwest wind flow aloft, several "Clipper" systems will provide cold shots of air and light snow.

The graphic below shows the timing of our best snow chances. The first front will move through tonight with flurries and light snow showers. A dusting possible, providing slick spots on the roads early Wednesday. 

The 1st Futurecast map below shows wind chills in the teens (actual temps in the 20s), with a few flurries early Wednesday.  The 2nd weather map is the NAM model total snowfall by Wednesday morning, which is showing almost nothing.  The 3rd map is the GFS weather model, showing a dusting up to a few tenths of an inch.  Again, not much expected.

The 4th, 5th, and 6th maps show the next Clipper which will arrive on Thursday lasting possibly into early Friday.  This front has the potential of a little more snow with the GFS and EURO printing out around an 1" or less for most locations, perhaps a little more north.  This will possibly give us slushy spots for our Thursday evening commute and possible slick roads for our Friday morning commute. 

The last system will move through with light snow chances (especially northeast) on Saturday. 

As well all know, although we're not looking at any big winter storms, even a little snow can cause travel troubles.  Stay tuned to the latest updates.  Timing and amounts are certainly subject to change.  Tweet me any questions @WHAS11Ben  'like my facebook page for more updates.
