Precipitation will meet a trough in our area by tomorrow. That trough will begin cooler air to the area from Canada that will change our precipitation moving from the south over to snow.
Here is a look at future temperatures in our area for Monday afternoon. Again, that trough will be moving into the area dropping our temperatures. Temperatures will be moving towards freezing by 4 PM Monday and will only get colder from there.
So, here is a look at the precipitation that will move into the area later tonight. Rain will begin late tonight but as the temperatures begin to get cooler rain will begin to change to a wintry mix. Snow may not stick when it first starts falling but overtime snow will begin to stick. Some steady snow is possible but also some lake effect snow from Lake Michigan is also possible. That could give some of us higher snow accumulations than what is forecasted, more on snow accumulations below.
Another thing to watch will be the gusty winds.
Alright, so many of the models are still kind of over the place with snow accumulations. Above is a look at the NAM 3K model.
I am forecasting for our area to see at least 1 inch of snow with snow most likely between 2 to 5 inches. At most, we could see 6 inches of snow. Maybe even 7 inches, remember some lake effect snow bands are also possible.
Another thing many of you may be wondering is how will this weather affect travel on the roads. Well Monday, we could see some slushy roads. Monday night into Tuesday morning temps will drop into the 20s and we could see some icy/slick roads by Tuesday morning. Wednesday morning could be slick as well and I think by Thursday the roads should be fine.
