... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Saturday evening
through Sunday afternoon...
* timing... rain and snow mixed is expected on Saturday changing to all
snow by late Saturday afternoon or Saturday evening. Snow will
pick up in intensity Saturday night and continue into Sunday.
* Storm total snow... accumulations of 5 to 9 inches are expected
with locally higher amounts. Highest amounts appear to be most
likely in the eastern side of the watch area.
* Winds/visibility... north winds will increase Saturday night
and persist into Sunday at 15 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.
* Impacts... roads will become slick and hazardous. Drifting snow
will create low visibilities Sunday and may make it difficult
for Road crews to keep roads clear... especially in open areas.
A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
