Heavy Snow Band

There is a heavy band of snow moving across the area. Could see quick half inch with to an once by 3 PM then drier air and colder temperatures follow. It isn't above freezing but surface melting on plowed roads have things in rather good shape. Forecasters till calling for an additional couple of inches overnight and of course the blowing and drifting. Look for the low end of my 5 to 9 inch forecast to verify. I would be shocked if we made it to 7 inches.

I wonder if the GFS forecast model is on crack. The weekend clipper which looked like a dusting before now looks like 5 to 7 inches on Saturday. Another system shows up for next week with accumulating snow too. I hear there might be some other model support.

We need to be thinking about single digit lows coming soon too.
