Tri-States Could See First Snow of 2019 Saturday

The Tri-States could see its first official snowfall of 2019 this weekend, but only a small amount of snow is expected. Just less than an inch of snow fell on the area on New Year’s Eve, but according to official readings from the National Weather Service, there has not been any snowfall yet in 2019. KCRG meteorologist Kaj O’Mara tells us the snow isn’t expected to begin falling until after midnight tonight, and should wrap up tomorrow afternoon. KCRG currently predicts anywhere between a dusting and two inches of snowfall for Dubuque County. But realistically, O’Mara says to count on about an inch or less. One factor that could diminish the amount of snow the area receives is a high pressure system currently situated over the Great Lakes. Those systems have a tendency to “chew up” the moisture that would otherwise produce snow. Whatever falls tomorrow isn’t expected to last long. High temperatures are expected to return to the mid-30s early next week.
