Tri-States’ First Significant Winter Storm to Bring Snow, Wind, Cold

The Tri-State area is due to receive its first significant burst of winter weather this weekend. According to our coverage partners at KCRG-TV, snow will move into the area on Friday afternoon and stick around through Saturday morning. Snowfall amounts are currently predicted between four and eight inches over the course of the storm. Meteorologist Kaj O’Mara says to expect moderate snowfall to begin on Friday afternoon, with the heaviest doses coming Friday night through the overnight hours. The amount of snow that falls will largely be dictated by how heavy the snowfall ratio gets. Those 4-8 inch snow totals are predicted throughout our area. Some locally heavier amounts could also be possible, depending on where what’s known as the “pivot point” sets up. The snow will be accompanied by strong winds out of the northeast. O’Mara says blowing snow will be a possibility through the day on Saturday. Cold air will also fill in behind the snow system, with low temperatures both Saturday and Sunday night expected to drop into the single digits below zero. Sunday’s high will only reach the upper single digits above zero.
