Snow Later? Models Agree

Click on the above image to enlarge after reading this blog to take a closer look. Right now (9:00 am), we have rain, freezing rain, and sleet. As temperatures warm today, most (not all) will be all rain. As colder air moves in, we will change to all snow. The reason we are not all snow right now is that we are not below freezing through the entire column of air above.

In the above images, we have two of the most used models, showing the potential snowfall for today and tonight. Notice, many spots will see 1-3" of snow. Jonesboro may even see an inch.

If you are venturing out tonight, be aware, we could have some travel problems.

Want to thank you for working so hard all week to keep us informed and calm about the nasty winter weather. While many want a white Christmas, for some of us winter precip poses significant threat of isolation and discomfort, even harm. Knowing in advance about winter precip lets us try to prepare. It helps to know somebody is watching, keeping us informed. Please thank your family for sharing you with us during the holidays. Please ignore the trolls who yelled at you for disrupting their Christmas TV shows and games to share weather updates, they don't recognize the potential emergencies from winter precip.
