Snow Chances Increasing

We're now getting a better handle on how this should play out.


  • Friday will start off mild with falling temperatures.


  • Light rain should move in late in the day


  • It will change to a brief period of sleet, then snow. Some may not get any sleet and go directly to snow.


  • Most of this in the Channel 7 viewing area should occur after school hours


  • Temperatures will hover around 32° which means accumulations on grassy surfaces, but mountains will be colder with road issues.


  • Slush may build up on the roads elsewhere if the snowfall rate is intense


  • The snow will be clumpy like mashed potatoes which means great for snowballs and building a snowman.


  • The snow should end around midnight with temperatures falling into the teens and 20s.


  • Saturday morning will have slick roads


  • March sunshine should help the roads melt quickly later Saturday morning

I think it's best to look at snow depth to guide us to an accumulation map. The Euro has an area in the Ozarks and the western Mountains of 1-2''+. Elsewhere up to 1'' or less

The GFS is very similar, but shows amounts could reach 4'' in the northern mountains

How about records? Meteorologist James Bryant has found a few.



After the brief snow, a massive warm up arrives next week and I think we turn to the corner to spring.
