Light Snow, Rain Friday Morning. A More Significant Storm This Weekend

News

Good evening from chief meteorologist Tony Petrarca..

It looks like our weather will become more active starting Friday and especially by the later half of the weekend. We are tracking two weather sytems …the first one look on Friday looks weak but still significant as far as slippery travel Friday morning. Light snow will arrive during the pre-dawn hours of Friday then changing to light rain. Accumulations of a coating to 1 inch early Friday morning will create some slippery travel.

The 2nd system currently located off the west coast of the US looks for more signifcant for us by later Saturday night into Sunday. While the storm is likely to impact our area, what is uncertain at this point is the precpitation “type” and  “amounts”. Right now we are forecasting a mix of snow, ice and rain. Since the paramters that will make this storm are still 2800 miles away, the specfics are still in question so check back with us next few days for updates..
