Currently we have clouds building in from the west in association with a clipper system. This clipper system, as with most fast movers in a progressive patter, will serve as more of whitening of the snowpack and nuisance for early Friday morning travel. The system does not look to be here for very long, and possibly will be in and out before the mid morning hours. As of right now, the beginning of the morning commute does look to be snowy though, so please be careful if you need to travel especially between 5 and 9 am.
Right now with the cloudy skies, we have temperatures statewide hovering in the upper 20s and low 30s. These Temperatures don't look to budge much as the clouds will work as an insulator, but overnight temps look to be well below freezing and prime for snowy conditions. Snow should begin to move in statewide between 12 and 2 am, and continue through most of the morning with varying intensities. All said and done, we expect 2-4 inches to fall in the northern tier of the state, while 1-3 is expected to fall elsewhere except the far southeastern portion of the state where a general coating to 2 inches is expected. Our map has changed since yesterday, bringing the higher totals to the northern part of the state, with less falling in the southeastern portion of the state as current conditions and models have trended the disturbance north, as is quite common with clipper systems. Not expected to be major storm, but could throw a wrench into the morning commute.
