…WINTER WEATHER IMPACTS PROBABLE LATE THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY…

 

AN ARCTIC FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION WEDNESDAY NIGHT

AND ESTABLISH COLD AIR ACROSS THE REGION THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

MEANWHILE STRONG FLOW IN THE UPPER LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE WILL

CARRY DISTURBANCES FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION.

THE DISTURBANCES WILL LIKELY GENERATE WINTRY PRECIPITATION IN

THE COLD AIR BEHIND THE ARCTIC FRONT…ESPECIALLY LATE THURSDAY

THROUGH FRIDAY.

 

MAINLY RAIN…POSSIBLY MIXED WITH SLEET IS FORECAST THURSDAY.

THE PRECIPITATION WILL LIKELY TRANSITION TO FREEZING RAIN…SLEET

AND THEN SNOW THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY AS THE INVADING COLDER

AIR DEEPENS FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION.

 

WHILE IT IS STILL TOO SOON TO FORECAST SPECIFIC AMOUNTS GIVEN THE

EXPECTED TRANSITIONAL NATURE OF THE PRECIPITATION…CONFIDENCE IS

INCREASING IN OUR AREA SEEING A RESPECTABLE AMOUNT OF PRECIPITATION

ACCUMULATION. THIS WILL LIKELY TRANSLATE INTO WINTER WEATHER

IMPACTS OVERNIGHT THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
