Wet Weekend Ahead, But No Snow

Posted February 12, 2018

"Snow will come to an end by midnight, with snowfall accumulations expected to range from a trace to 3" in the Denver metro area and eastern plains.

While no two winter events are the same, we can look at patterns and get a better understanding of what we can expect in a given year. The upper Midwest is preparing for a wintry blast as a winter storm is expected across the region, with forecasters saying up to a foot of snow is expected in some areas. We'll start to see the freezing rain threat diminish by late this morning.

Warmer temperatures arrive by midweek.

Tonight - Snow, mainly before 4am.

After almost nine inches of snow fell Friday, more is expected - up to 3 inches on Sunday for areas south of M-59, according to the National Weather Service.

But the weekend has the potential to be eventful weather-wise with a combination of freezing rain, sleet and snow.

If it can be helped, it'll probably be best to stick to an indoors-only agenda this weekend. As the evening approaching, the main system begins to track into Mid-Missouri and will bring with it a band of snow showers and freezing rain. The rain will turn to snow in the even, with temps dipping to around 19 degrees. The heavy snow is forecast to move into upstate NY and New England by early Saturday. Occurs when rain falls into a layer of air with temperatures below freezing. There is also the chance for some freezing drizzle developing late Friday night. It's means a snow day for students but it hasn't all been fun and games. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 47.

The Kansas City metropolitan area could experience freezing drizzle mixed with snow, the weather service said, with totals between a trace and 1 inch.

Ice accumulation of up to.10 on an inch could make roads and sidewalks quite slick by Sunday morning.
