Some snow is looking increasingly likely for Friday afternoon, possibly coinciding with rush hour. With temperatures well below freezing, it will allow precipitation to accumulate. However, this storm system is unlikely to produce as much snow as the storm last Saturday (December 9). The best chance of around an inch or so of snow are in southern and eastern zones.
Frigid air is still blowing into the area after the passage of a cold front on Tuesday. This will ensure that any precipitation we see Friday from this weak system developing off the coast will fall in the form of snow. The question remains, though: How much precipitation will make it this far north?
Today's computer guidance has moved a little further north and west with the storm's precipitation shield, and placement, before the system heads out to sea. It appears that light snow could start falling as early as noon, and should be out of here around 5pm (give or take 1-2 hours). Again, this snow will not be heavy at all. However, what falls will stick, especially to grassy areas. Below is an hour-by-hour simulation of the radar from the North American Model.
Impacts from this storm will be very location dependent, as some areas may see snow as other areas a few miles away stay dry. Nevertheless, this will not be a high impact event. Snow could accumulate on area roads, especially side streets. Even with a coating of snow, this could lead to some travel issues for the evening commute. I do not expect area schools, businesses, or government agencies to close early-- but I won't say that chance is completely zero. I would give a 15% chance of early dismissals.
