Snow is still falling as this forecast is being typed, although we should see most snow leave the region by 7-8 PM. What a storm! Many places saw over a foot, and some places along I-64 may receive almost 20 inches! Winter Storm Warnings stretch through almost all of the area until 11 AM tomorrow. An additional 1-3 inches is possible on top of what has already fallen. Skies (finally!) clear our later tonight, which will set us up for a much quieter Monday. Some light up slope flurries are still possible, but no more foot+ totals along the region!
The air mass coming in after the storm is chilly! Highs for Monday will barely sneak into the 40s. Monday night could be frigid, with the snow pack helping radiate away heat quickly! Temperature will drop into the upper teens. The rest of the week follows a similar script, with highs around 40 and lows around 20. We’ll be above freezing some, but expect the snow pack to stick around for a bit. The silver lining with this is that sunshine is set to return on Tuesday, and linger through Wednesday and Thursday.
Our next storm comes next Friday. Fortunately, it’s just looking like a rain-maker at this point, which will help bring more warmth into the picture. Unfortunately, more cold air will follow after that. So far, a December thaw is not in the long term picture.
