Snow to Usher in the First Day of Spring

Starting around 4-5 AM, a mix of rain and snow will overspread the area, quickly turning to all snow. Snow should be moderate to heavy by the time the sun comes up, and although road accumulations should be pretty inconsequential, expect 2-4″ of accumulation on grass.

Impacts will be greater in the northwest parts of the county where we are looking at slushy rather than wet roads, but either way, by 11 AM snow will be melting faster than it is accumulating.

This is a very tough call, due to the marginal temperatures as well as timing that does not support a delay. Any of the three scenarios (full day, delay, closed) will be on the table, but I would slightly lean towards closed. Probably 40/30/30 odds at best, purely based on the recent string of conservative calls by the county. Anyone still up at this time should be prepared for a full day tomorrow.

There is also a possible threat Tuesday-Wednesday of next week, but more likely than not that will end up as nothing, although obviously enough nothing can be ruled out at this time.

Feel free to ask any other questions you may have below!
