Possible Snow Storm Friday
The graphic above shows 12-hour liquid equivalent totals (forecast) across the US and southern Canada. That orange bulls eye in Iowa indicates up to 0.75" of liquid-equivalent precipitation falling late Friday afternoon and Friday evening. That would "fluff-up" to well over a foot of snow for that area! Here in the Stateline, I'm thinking we'll see somewhat lesser amounts of liquid-equivalent. Also, the exact track and strength of this low is still questionable since it's still not made it onshore from the Pacific Ocean. Nonetheless, a snowstorm with more than 6" of accumulation is looking more likely for us late Friday into Friday night. Stay tuned!
