My early morning 4 inch snowfall has diminished after a few hours of mixed precipitation and rain. You may have experienced the same thing and are beginning to see the light at the end of the storm.
Don’t be fooled. We’re about to experience what is called “wrap around snow” from the low pressure system as it inches off the coast. The winds will switch back to a NNW flow and the counterclockwise rotation of the system will usher in an evening filled with more snow.
While some areas on the shore may receive an additional dusting of snow it is probable, if not downright likely, that many of us will pick up 1 to 3 more inches of snow tonight. It could even linger into Monday morning.
The areas most likely to see the greatest accumulations of snow are areas west of Route 13 and to the north and northwest of Salisbury. It will not matter how much snow falls since it will be the topping on an icy layer that will form as temperatures drop into the upper 20’s tonight.
I don’t think I’ll be driving!
