How Much Snow Will Fall?
The snow is falling now. It started sticking fast and I started getting a little anxious about our forecast at first, but we're good. I went 2-4" for Jonesboro at 6:00 last night... then backed it down to 1-3". (Not a big deal"... Sarah this morning is going 2-5" areawide and I think that is good for now. Could a few spots get 6"? Sure, we mentioned that in all newscasts... Mainly SW of Jonesboro.
Here's the problem. It's a dry and powdery snow and is blowing around like crazy! It's going to be hard to measure. In a 10x10 square a person can measure a range of 5" easily! LOL
Here's the deal... the roads are going to be bad. Many people can sled. It's going to be cold. Whether you get 2-3" or 4-6", the result will be very similar. Even if you have 2"... I bet you can find a snow drift that measures much more! :)
Enjoy it! It happened... again.
