Another Round of Snow Saturday Morning

Snowfall Forecast for Saturday Morning

A few days ago, this next snow maker was expected to stay well to our south.   Well…….  this same weather system is tracking a little bit more to the north, putting us on the northern fringe of accumulating snow.

Here is what you need to know:

  • Snow moves in after Midnight
  • Accumulating snow ends by late morning
  • More flurries are expected in the afternoon.
  • Snowfall totals will range from 1-3″ across the WANE viewing area.
  • The Fort should expect to see about 2″ of snow.

Now, I was gone during our last snow event and from what I could tell, the Live Doppler 15 Fury Weather Team did a great job forecasting the snow totals.   (You have to remember, I am a weather junkie and even though I was on Christmas vacation over 700 miles away, I was actually forecasting the snow for Fort Wayne.)   When it comes to snow forecasting folks… it still is not a perfect science!   Even though I expect 1-3″ by late Saturday morning, I can not forecast exactly where the heavier snow bands may set up.  If I am off by only 20 miles, that could make a difference between and inch or so.  So, no reason to get upset if I say 2″ for the Fort and we see only an inch, or up to 4″.
