Potential Storm Snow Totals

Another weekend snow storm is impacting the Stateline area this weekend, this time with heavier snow totals to the Northeast and lower totals in Southwestern counties.  Similar to last weekend's storm, this storm is coming in 2 phases - the first phase on Friday night with snow due to warm air pushing north and a trough also pushing through the area.  We may see a break in the snow later tonight and then phase II will start tomorrow around noon-time as the core of the storm passes to our South and a cold front approaches from the Northwest, triggering snow from the afternoon until later Saturday evening. After the cold front passes the Stateline, temperatures will drop dramatically, heading for a low on Sunday morning of -9 degrees!

Expected snow totals from the storm vary widely from 6-8 inches for Northeastern Counties to 2-3 inches for Southwestern counties - these will be totals from both phases of the storm!  Be careful driving especially on Saturday as winds will kick-up from the Northwest at 5-15 miles per hour with some gusts up to 30.  Enjoy our wintery weekend!
