Wednesday Evening Update on Friday’s Winter Storm

Maps courtesy of the National Weather Service

A winter storm consisting primarily of light snow is still headed our way this Friday. The National Weather Service has released updated maps showing their expected snowfall, reasonable worst case scenario, and low end amounts.

In the latest map from the NWS, 1-3 inches is expected for most of the area with higher totals the further north you go. The “reasonable worst case scenario” shows about 4-5 inches for the area and the “low end amount” shows less than an inch for most of the area (maps below).

FOX5’s Mike Thomas has 1-3 inches currently forecasted for most of the area with “boom” and “bust” scenarios. The boom scenario (GRAF model) shows 3-5 inches for the area while the bust scenario (NAM model) shows half an inch to an inch for most. His forecast can also be seen below.

We’ll have a Pencil Prediction out (if necessary) for Thursday, January 18th later this evening or tonight.
