Sabrina Ullman: Calm conditions until Tuesday
Today will be cloudy but dry. Dense fog is likely before 11 am, especially towards the head of the lake. Afternoon highs will be in the low thirties, a trend that will continue for the next several days.
We stay dry tonight and tomorrow. On Tuesday, precipitation chances will increase throughout the night as a winter storm slowly heads our way. Travel will be an issue all day Wednesday as moderate to heavy snowfall is expected as well as strong winds.
Snowfall totals for Tuesday evening through Thursday will likely be 1-3″ close to the international border and over three inches for the rest of the area, potentially as much as a foot as snow. The slightest shift in track will impact snow amounts- this round will have a sharp gradient between 3-6″ and 6-12″.
As it gets closer, the forecast may change- this system has already slowed down a couple of times and shifted slightly south. The Storm Track Weather team will continue to keep a close eye on this week’s snow and update the forecast as needed.
