Winter’s First Sticking Snow

UPDATED  POST:  Saturday Afternoon, December 3, 2016

Just wanted to give you a quick update on the snow Saturday night and Sunday.

Nothing has changed from my earlier update except parts of the area are under a “Winter Weather Advisory” later tonight and Sunday.

I still think we’ll see 1-3″ of snow mainly on grassy surfaces.   Roadways will still be slushy until later Sunday.

Welcome to Saturday and welcome to winter!

This part sounds familiar from my blog yesterday:  “After the third warmest November on record in the Quad Cities, winter will be making its return to Iowa and Illinois to welcome December. Over the next week, we have three chances of seeing some snow accumulation.”

Here’s the updated forecast and blog!

If you follow my forecast on “Local 4 News This Morning” or my blogs for winter weather updates, you know I always tell you to keep up on the changing forecast when snow is coming.  There’s a good reason.  Small changes in the forecast can have big implications.

Here’s an update on the three weather systems that I first told you about Friday morning in my blog and on-air:

Saturday Night:  Rain and snow will develop late and change over to snow.

Sunday:  Moderate snow in the morning will change to light rain in the afternoon.

Since the ground is still relatively warm and part of the precipitation will come down as a mix or rain, accumulations will mainly be on grassy and elevated surfaces.

We could see anywhere from  1-3″ of slushy snow.  It’ll start to melt away during the afternoon.

Monday Night & Tuesday:  Wintry mix still possible.  It’s not looking too impressive this morning.

Wednesday and Wednesday Night bigger snow:  This may very well not happen!  Stay tuned.  The cold air will definitely be coming in late week!

However, since we may not get a blanket of snow Wednesday night and Thursday, lows later in the week may only drop into the teens and not the single digits.

If we get a blanket of snow Wednesday and Wednesday night, then lows in the single digits are still possible.

Stay up on the latest forecast.  This is a developing and changing weather pattern.
