More Snow?January 29th, 2014 at 11:49 am by Greg Shoup under Weather
Take a look at the national snowfall map. One thing you may notice is that there is more snow across the southeastern U.S. than across the 10,000 foot level of the Sierra Nevada. Wow, talk about an odd winter.
I can’t tell you how many times I get asked anytime there may or may not be snow in the forecast. People now have a myriad of ways to get information. The problem is that many are not the best or most accurate and are nothing more than rumors started by someone on Facebook or Twitter. Here’s the latest thinking on two upcoming snow chances for our area.
Our next snowfall chance will be another ‘clipper’ type system which could bring another inch or two of snow from Thursday evening through Friday morning. Here’s some early projections from Futurecast.
The second and more potent storm will be Friday night and Saturday. While there is a lot of moisture with this storm I still believe there is a lot of uncertainty as well. First and foremost is where the freezing line will be and how much of this system will be rain for us and how much will be snow. The European is still projecting a large amount of snowfall but nearly half of the moisture falls as rain. The new GFS or American model puts us just on the freezing line and has about .20″ of rain and a similar amount of snow. So we will continue tracking these two systems.
Right now next week looks quiet, and for you Superbowl fans the forecast is partly sunny and a high of 46 F. So much for the Farmer’s Almanac super storm that was going to fill the stadium with snow.
