Good morning bloggers,
The snowfall accumulations were not as high as we expected for one main reason. The temperatures were 32-33 instead of 29-30 like we had thought. So, the first 3-4 hours of snow that occurred from 8 AM to noon melted as temperatures were in the mid 30s. We likely would have had 2-3″ by midnight. Them once temperatures dropped to 32 around midnight and the snow increased, it began to accumulate, but there has been compacting due to the weight of the wet snow. Amounts across the city are 4 to 5″ and we will likely see another 2-4″, but it may compact to 1-2″ more.
After 10-11 AM, temperatures will rise 1-2 degree and the sun being up (not out) will stop the accumulation.
We will have an update later.
