Next Snow System Could Impact Multiple Commutes This Week

For as lackluster as the winter has seemed from a snowfall standpoint, many would be surprised to hear that we're just barely running behind the normal pace. With Sunday's 2.0" accounted for, our seasonal snowfall tally has reached 25.4". That's less than an inch shy of where we should be by February 10, believe it or not!

There's more snow on the way later on this week, enough potentially to put us ahead of the normal pace, at least for a time. Snow is likely to develop as early as late Wednesday Afternoon, with chances rising as we progress through the evening and overnight hours. Should snow begin just early enough, it's possible that roads could be a little bit on the slick side for the Wednesday Evening commute. Thursday's morning commute is far more likely to see slick or snow-covered roads.

While it's premature to speculate on precise snowfall amounts, early indications strongly suggest we're not expecting this storm to produce prolific amounts of snowfall. At this stage, it appears more likely that the most significant snowfall accumulations will be positioned to the southeast of the Stateline. With the storm still approximately 48 hours away, there's certainly the potential for changes in the storm track, so it's prudent to monitor the situation. We'll be sure to pass along any new information as it becomes available.
