Projected Snow Totals for Saturday Increase Again; Half the County Now in 3-4″ Range

by MCS Staff

This morning we let you know that a period of snow is possible on Saturday following rainfall early in the day. Temps will drop into the 30s on Saturday afternoon and eventually the upper 20s, which would allow for snow in the afternoon.

The evening update from the National Weather Service had almost all of MoCo in the 1 inch range with Damascus in the 1-2″ range.

The latest update from 7:12pm has half of MoCo in the 1-2″ range and the other half in the 3-4″ range. Things can still change and we will keep you updated throughout the day tomorrow.

Below you’ll see the latest ‘Forecaster’s Discussion’ per the NWS, which hasn’t changed form earlier today:

Precipitation will rapidly transition over to snow behind the system`s cold front. When this will happen in any given spot will highly depend on the system`s ultimate track. Guidance today has trended further southeast with the track of the low, which lends itself to a cooler solution.

“As a result, the expected and high end totals have been upped across the area. That being said, considerable uncertainty still remains, and we would like to see multiple runs of the same trend before confidence increases.”
