Possible Accumulation Thursday

I know that I usually do not throw out accumulation maps until 48 hours out, but I got a little gutsy tonight. Here's my thinking right now. It's not overly impressive, but I believe we will see some travel problems at some point on Thursday. Here are some things that could mess with the accumulation forecast:

  • We stay above freezing (less)
  • We get more sleet/freezing rain than snow (less)
  • Colder than expected (more)
  • More moisture, yet still cold (more)
My point is... this could change and probably will, BUT I was in the mood to throw some darts and here we have an accumulation map on Monday for a storm on Thursday! Click the image to enlarge.

Stay tuned on air and online at

Have a great week everyone!
