Snow Possible Early Friday, National Weather Service Says

03 February 2018

According to the outlook, winter weather is possible. The outlook cautioned that confidence is still low on the amounts and types of precipitation and folks should continue to monitor the forecast. We sailed through the first month of 2018 without a whiff of snow or a single day that stayed below 40 degrees.

While we are only forecasting an inch or two of snow for most, the combination of that along with a flash freeze occurring at the same time will likely make for a dicey morning commute. Again, residents are asked to use caution while driving to work or school. This will allow for additional moisture and rain chances Sunday night to turn back into snow.

Friday does not represent the last snowfall Long Islanders will see this weekend, unfortunately- a chance of snow exists in the forecast for Saturday night, which is expected to change over to rain on Sunday.

The tricky part of the forecast is determining how cold temperatures will get overnight Saturday. Sun returns today. It's windy and cold with temperatures in the upper 20s through most of the day and wind chills in the teens.

Tonight - Periods of rain. Northwest wind around 5 miles per hour becoming calm in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 40 percent. Total nighttime snow accumulation of around an inch possible. "In other words - despite the mild Saturday, we'll be dealing with 'mostly cloudy" skies. Winds could gust as high as 21 miles per hour. Wind chill values between zero and 10. Highs in the mid 20s throughout the day. West wind 9 to 15 miles per hour. "MINNESOTA: "Around 1" to 3" of snow will fall in Minnesota on Saturday. "SUNDAY: Low pressure lifting out of the Tennessee Valley will pass by to our west bringing around 1/2" of rain.

You can see live weather updates via the National Weather Service and other Twitter sources below. Additional liquid precipitation could range from a quarter to half an inch, and up to three quarters of an inch will be seen very close to the Ohio River.

Another storm system moves through on Monday with accumulation snows likely north of the viewing area.
