Keep Your Ice Scrapers Handy

Keep Your Ice Scrapers Handy

Our meteorologist Kevin Arnone says we can be expecting some bad weather this week.

In his latest update he says:

Event 1 – Monday

I have been watching two separate storm systems.  One of which will occur on Monday and a bigger more intense one for Wednesday. 

As far as the Monday system is concerned.  This will be a lighter even focusing mostly on the shore.  Not a big storm by any means but due to the timing it will cause many head aches. 

Flurries may begin as early as 10 am but the steadier snow will not fall until 12-2 PM.  However it will be a very quick storm as it is all out of here by 5-7 PM. 

Mostly a coastal event, 1-3 inches at the most will be my first call for towns south of I-84. 

Anything north of that line, coating to an inch. 

Event 2 – Wednesday

As far as Wednesday is concerned, still have a few model runs to see before I can confidently tell you how much snow we will receive.  We will receive something, but the issue with this system is which track it will take, (or which model it agrees with).

This system will have a great deal of ice involved, which will lower snow totals.  Determining when the switch over to snow to ice occurs is key in making an accurate forecast.

As far as timing is concerned with the precipitation, start time Late Tuesday Night, heaviest during Wednesday afternoon and ending late Wednesday night.
