Good New Year’s Evening bloggers,
We hope everyone has a safe and nice night as we ring in the new year! Here comes 2013 and the snow is increasing this evening as the main wave heads our way. This new band of snow has been increasing along and north of the main wave. Additional minor accumulations are likely along and north of the track of this system with up to two additional inches still possible in the heavier bands. We expect this to weaken within three hours or so as 2013 approaches. Take a look at the wave right now:
Colder air has been moving in, and now that the sun has set there will likely be many more slick spots developing. So, please be careful and give yourself a lot of extra time if you are heading out on to celebrate the New Year. Here is a radar image from around 5:55 PM:
The white echoes are pretty heavy snow that just formed as Jeff Penner was coming on at 6 PM. We will keep you updated as the new year approaches. It looks like we could easily get one inch of snow on top of what we have had.
We are now just a few hours away from 2013. I am in Las Vegas, coming back tomorrow. I have been trying to enjoy this storm from here, and it has been sort of fun. I will get to see the snow when I land tomorrow evening. Let us know what your final snowfall totals are. It has certainly been an exciting weather day.
Happy New Year from our weather team!
