Pencil Prediction (School Closings and Delays) For Tuesday, January 16th

Courtesy of the National Weather Service

We are currently under a Winter Weather Advisory until 7am Tuesday morning with light snow falling Monday morning, slowing down a bit mid-morning, and becoming steadier in the afternoon and into tonight.

Most are forecasting a widespread 1-3 or 2-4 inches (with “boom” scenarios dropping 4+ inches and “bust” scenarios dropping only about an inch of snow). Road temps will creep up in the early afternoon, but fall below freezing again later on today which will allow for snow to stick on roadways and make this evening and tonight pretty messy. Snow is expected to fall overnight and end tomorrow morning, which is likely to also cause slick roads for the Tuesday morning commute.

As most of us know, it doesn’t take much to impact our area. The timing of this snow, while not perfect because of the early start, could really throw a wrench into Tuesday morning if snow continues to fall overnight. If we are on the higher end of projections, closures are certainly possible. If we are on the lower end, then we are looking at the potential of delays.
